Sharing with you remarks by CARDI’s Chairman of Board of Directors, Ignatius Jean at the launch of Caribbean Week of Agriculture 2021.
Here are some key takeaways:
1️⃣ Caribbean food systems are fragile! It is necessary to rethink and change the way we produce and consume food
2️⃣ Research and Development underpins the transformation of our food systems
3️⃣ CARDI is committed to expanding our partnerships to deliver the science based solutions needed for building productive, sustainable, competitive and resilient food systems
All stakeholders are keenly aware that we have to rethink the way we practice agriculture in the Caribbean.
This CWA will help us to assess our current state and map out the future of Caribbean food security particularly in the context of the COVID19 pandemic.
