APP Boosts Small Farmers in The Bahamas and the Region

Improving food security in The Bahamas and the Caribbean region begins with increasing production and productivity among small farmers throughout CARICOM countries. The Ministry of Agriculture, Marine Resources & Local Government launched the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) Agriculture Policy Programme (APP) November 24 at Workers House, Harold Road.

The Agriculture Policy Programme, funded by the European Development Fund, aims to link small producers throughout the CARICOM region, to local, national, and regional markets.
