Hojjati in Rome to Attend FAO Confab

Iran’s Agriculture Minister Mahmoud Hojjati arrived in the Italian capital Rome on Sunday at the head of a delegation to attend the 40th session of Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Conference that opens today and will run through July 8.
The FAO confab is held biennially where representatives from its 194 members come together to address questions related to food and agriculture in order for them to be reviewed and implemented through national action.  
FAO began a technical cooperation program called “Capacity Building for Increasing Sustainable Oilseed Production Focused on Soybean Value” in a workshop held in Tehran last month, which will be implemented over 2017-19.
The main objectives of the project include building capacity in the public and private sectors for using innovative methods in producing sustainable crops and applying the methods to the oilseed value chain as well as integrating the latest technologies into cereal-based production systems. The program was created to enable FAO to make its know-how and technical expertise available to member countries upon request, drawing from its own resources. It provides assistance in all areas pertaining to FAO’s mandate and competence, which are covered by the strategic framework to respond to governments’ priority needs.
TCP projects catalyze change, foster capacity development and assist countries in mobilizing resources, in line with the Country Programming Frameworks agreed to with governments.
Iran and FAO will carry out their first joint program on soybean cultivation in the city of Safiabad in the southern Khuzestan Province’s Dezful County this summer.
