(Image source: Ikiwaner)The UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has signed an agreement with the Eduardo dos Santos Foundation (FESA) to carry out joint projects with a main purpose of improving the quality of services rural communities in Africa receive

The agreement demonstrates that there is a new vision and a solid partnership between both parties, according to the regional representative for Africa of FAO, Maria Helena Semedi.

“The signing of the memorandum of cooperation makes FESA a privileged partner of that UN body,” Semedi said.

The process that previously only applied to governments has now been extended to the Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), civil society institutions and associations producer.

The protocol, which is set to be in action in the indefinite period, could be renewed and reformed according to the interest of the parties and context.

It also focuses on improving other areas including agriculture, food security, staff training, rural development, technical assistance.
