Praia, Aug 21 (Inforpress) – Cabo Verde, as an island country that has become increasingly vulnerable due to climate change, needs to implement measures to make agriculture more resilient in relation to these changes.
The statement was made today by the Minister of Agriculture and Environment, Gilberto Silva, at the official presentation of the “Adaptation of Family Farming to Climate Change Project”, to be implemented by the Program for the Promotion of Rural Socioeconomic Opportunities (POSER) .
According to Gilberto Silva, implementing these measures means, in practice, better managing water, better conserving soils, adopting techniques and organization that allow the much more durable exploitation of these natural resources.
In this context, he said, the project presented here will be implemented on some islands and will have in its specificity a watershed approach, where the focus will be on concrete measures that have to do with water and soil conservation.
