By Johnson Bobby Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, April 1 (LINA) - The World Bank has provided US$3.4 million agriculture package to benefit 10,500 youths from the 15 political sub-divisions for 18 months.

This was disclosed by the Community Livelihood Investment Project (CLIP) Manager Andrew K. Macgona, under the Social Protection Department at Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE).

He said the role of LACE as implementing partner of the Government of Liberia and World Bank is to work with local partners, referred to as Community Facilitators (CF) , in the counties.

He told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) that in each county are 14 community projects focusing on agriculture for youths, aged between18-35 years.

He said a five-day workshop convening on food security in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County will discuss the roles of CFs and stakeholders, procurement of project inputs, community sensitization and mobilization, tracking attendance of workers and keeping of records, preparation of payroll and wages, monitoring and evaluation.

Others include roots and tuber crop production, swamp development, techniques in vegetable crops production and post-project monthly report.
