ECOWAS recommends regional food stock to curtail food crisis

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has recommended the establishment of a regional stock of foodstuffs to curtail food crisis and malnutrition in the sub-region.



The recommendation was made at the end of an extraordinary ministerial meeting held Wednesday in Lome.



The meeting also adopted several other recommendations aimed at battling food and nutritional crisis, according to Salifou Ousseini, who is in charge of agriculture, environment and water resources at the ECOWAS Commission.



He said the Commission would work with the World Food Programme (WFP) to ensure the success of the food stock programme.

The plan involves the storage of foodstuffs which would be made available during the transitional period between production seasons.
