Read Time:1 Minute, 37 Second

The President of the Farmers Union Network of Liberia (FUN) Josephine George Francis has disclosed that 75,000 farmers stand a chance to benefit under the Liberia Agricultural Sector Implementation Policy (LASIP ‘II’) if it is fully implemented by national government and actors involved.

Madam Francis made the disclosure at a one-day multi-stakeholder dialogue organized by FUN with support from ROPPA held under the theme: “multi-stakeholder dialogue for the participation of FOs (Farmers organizations) in the design, implementation and monitoring of agricultural policies.”

LASIP ‘II’, she said is an aggressive framework roadmap with a short implementation timeline (2023) that is very important to the growth and development of national worth; saying the need to properly implement said document cannot be overemphasized.

Similarly, Augustus Robert said LASIP ‘II’ suppose to be the roadmap for government follow in terms of developmental purposes.

He indicated that the document (LASIP II) is being used by donors and partners though it is yet to be endorsed by the cabinet noting that the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning is prioritizing the PAPD over LASIP ‘II’.

Roberts emphasized the need for President George Weah to be in the full front of agriculture in the country as it will create the needed worth for the country.

He bewailed “Government is not focusing on such thing that they want to buy the latest car.”

Also speaking, James Moore, Director of Marketing and Focus Person of LASIP ‘II’ said this is an ongoing process that needs validation by the government of Liberia; something that needs a political will.

This according to Moore requires resource mobilization in order to support agriculture activities in the country.

Moore mentioned the need for a agriculture sector implementation plan  as well as the validation by the cabinets which he claimed partners are looking forward to in order to put them in knowledgeable position in terms of how to support or invest in the sector.
