The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has revealed preparations to integrate over 100,000 fish farmers from Borno State which have been displaced by the raging Boko Haram insurgency crisis in the region.

This integration is into the organization’s Aquaculture Development Programme as was revealed by the Country Representative of the FAO, Suffyan Koroma. He made this known at the launch of the programme in Borno State.

The country representative further revealed that the programme was an integral part of the European Union Trust Fund (EUTF) which is aimed at providing aid for those who have been displaced in the state through the employ of agriculture. 

These agricultural interventions include the areas of crop production, livestock and fish production as well as processing of agricultural products.

He revealed that the FAO believed strongly in the ability of agriculture to provide adequate livelihood for families that have been affected by the insurgency crisis particularly those who at one time were involved in fish farming.

A total of 50 households will be supported; 30 in Jere, 10 in Gongulong and 20 in Monguno communities.
