Cooperation between the DA and FAO is intensified to increase agricultural productivity.

The Department of Agriculture announced on Wednesday that it would step up its long-standing partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in order to assist the administration in achieving its goal of raising domestic production and ensuring reasonable food prices.

The two parties discussed urgent concerns that needed to be resolved in order to achieve the food security target, according to a statement from the DA.

The DA-Bureau of Plant Industry, the Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita Program, increased rice and corn production and supply, programs to stabilize the price of agricultural commodities, and significant concerns about transboundary animal diseases affecting the nation’s livestock and poultry industries, according to the statement.

As it welcomed Lionel Henri Valentin Dabbadie as its new representative in the Philippines, the UN FAO had a conversation with the department.

According to the DA, “Senior Undersecretary (Domingo Panganiban) praised FAO for its continuous help to developing nations in promoting sustainability and encouraging development to make food security attainable.”

The two leaders acknowledged the need for “continuous coordination” in addition to talking about the country’s current state in the agriculture sector, particularly for more initiatives aligned with the goal of food security.

According to the DA, areas of cooperation have also been incorporated to hone the sector’s resilience and inclusion.

The document said, “Undersecretary Panganiban praised the knowledge and assistance of Mr. Dabbadie in these areas and asked the incoming FAO Philippines director to collaborate closely with the DA on policy and technical support.”

The Philippine Country Programming Framework (CPF), covering “rice, corn, cattle, poultry, fisheries, aquaculture, and agro-industrialization,” was mentioned by Panganiban and runs through 2024.

The UN FAO asked the DA to make the most of opportunities that could enhance Philippine agriculture’s skill set.

Among these are the 2023 Stocktaking Moment, the 2024 Asia-Pacific Regional Conference, The Hand-in-Hand Investment Forum, and the UN General Assembly’s International Day of Millet.
