The Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang has launched the World Bank-initiated Agro-Climatic Resilience Semi-Arid Landscapes project in the state.
The initiative was part of the governor’s agenda towards improving the Agricultural sector and the living conditions of farmers in the state.
At the event, the Governor renewed his pledge to ensure value for money on all projects and programmes being executed in the state.
Dignitaries within and outside Plateau State gathered to witness the official launch of the World Bank-initiated Agro-Climatic Resilience Semi-Arid Landscapes project in the state.
The project is an institutionalised World Bank programme designed to reactivate semi-arid landscapes in northern Nigeria following deforestation, and expected to combat issues surrounding desertification, drought, and landscape degradation.
The World Bank Country Director congratulates the government and people of Plateau State over the achievement.
The project is expected to result in the reclamation of degraded areas and strengthen Nigeria’s long-term enabling environment for integrated climate-resilient landscape management.
Responding, Mutfwang was grateful to the World Bank for financing the projects; he however appeals to the project coordinators to ensure that the state gets value for money where the projects are cited.
