NGO launches Agric, Climate Change Project in Bomi
By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, March 1 (LINA) - The Sustainable Urban and Rural Integrated Development Organization (SURIDO) has launched a project on agriculture and climate change in Bomi County.

The Executive Director of the organization, Paul Jarble, said the project, which is being sponsored by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), will work with communities in three agriculture projects to demonstrate alternatives to the slash and burn cultivation
method.

Mr. Jarble named the three working communities in Dewein District as the Ganga Farming Group, Beavoma Farming Group and the Zonta Farming Group.

He said through the agricultural cultivation, the organization will provide alternative livelihood options to residents.

Bomi County Assistant Superintendent for Development, Ernest Davis, who launched the project, welcomed the organization's initiatives.

Superintendent Davis pledged the county administration's support to the project.

He said the statement that Bomi is the poorest county can only be proved wrong if citizens of the county engage in agricultural activities.

Superintendent Davis urged the group to launch the project in other parts of Bomi County.

The launching program was attended by farmers, officials of the UNDP and authorities of the county and was held in Jenneh # 3, Dewein District, Bomi County.
