He said following the expiration of the 2018 to 2022 CPF, FAO in Nigeria commenced the process of consultation with relevant stakeholders at the federal level and at selected state levels.
The CPF is aligned with the national development policies and programmes in this country, it is aligned with our offer and support as the United Nations in Nigeria, it is also aligned with our FAO global strategic framework that emphasises the transformation of agrifood systems in countries.
The CPF in this case also takes advantage of a number of cooperative initiatives that FAO has launched in the last few years.
