COMFWB signs Tripartite Agreement with World Food Programme and Centre for Financial Inclusion

COMFWB entered into a tripartite agreement with the World Food Programme (WFP) and the Centre for Financial Inclusion (CFI), a semi-autonomous wing of the Eswatini Ministry of Finance at the first Southern Subregional Summit which took place at eSibayeni Lodge, Mastapha in the region of Manzini, Eswatini.

According to the memorandum of understanding, the three parties agree to cooperate to achieve common goals in Eswatini by implementing a program focused on strengthening the participation of women farmer groups as local produce suppliers in the Home-grown School Feeding program. Capacity strengthening will be provided in key areas of business skills such as financial literacy. This initiative will strengthen the women farmers’ capacity to produce high-value maize products, beans, and poultry products.

The three parties will seek to improve the food security and nutrition with a gender lens, of vulnerable populations in a way that addresses underlying causes of distress thus contributing to the progress of the realization of the right to adequate food in the context of national food and nutrition security. The partnership aims to secure transformative 2030 results focused on women and smallholder farmers across the agriculture value chain.
