MOA, FAO Agree To Revamp Information System

MONROVIA, November 9 (LINA) - The Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) and the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) have signed an agreement to re-establish the statistics and information management system at the ministry.

The project, which is funded under the Technical Cooperative Agreement between the government and FAO, will see the FAO providing a total of US$458,000 to revamp the information management system.

A statement from the FAO said the signing ceremony to consummate the agreement was performed at the Ministry of Agriculture in Gardnersville, outside Monrovia, by Agriculture Minister Moses Zinnah and FAO Country Representative Marc Abdala on behalf of their respective institutions.

The statement said Dr. Zinnah described the agreement as a milestone for the Government of Liberia, as it will reawaken the Division of Statistics at the ministry.

He said the agreement, which is in support of the information and statistics management system of the ministry, will strengthen the ministry's capacity for evidence-based planning, policy information and decision-making.

Zinnah noted that the project would support the timely access of reliable and accurate data to guide and support program implementation especially for the Liberia Agricultural Transformation Agenda.

In remarks, the FAO Country Director noted that it is important to strengthen the institutional capacity of the MOA to provide, manage and sustain a reliable database for agriculture in Liberia.

Abdala emphasized that, the project would strengthen the ministry’s capacity for agricultural statistics including assessment, survey, data collection, analysis and monitoring the food security status.
