FAO to help IAV build capacity, create jobs

FAO to help IAV build capacity, create jobs

Aug 13, 2017 - 20:08

KABUL (Pajhwok): The Food and Agriculture Organization (WFO) and the Institute of Agriculture and Veterinary (IAV) on Sunday inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on future cooperation.

Under the MoU, the FAO would cooperate with IAV in capacity building and creation of job opportunities for students.

IAV head Mohammad Abdul Rahimzai and Tomio Shicheri, FAO representative, inked the agreement here.

Without going into details, the FAO in a statement said it would help IAV in areas of capacity building for seven months.

Tomio said traditional methods were used in agriculture and livestock sectors in Afghanistan amid a shortage of professional people.

The FAO representative said IAV lacked necessary equipment and the organization would provide assistance it needed.

Dilawar Darmal, technical and professional training head at the Education Ministry, hailed FAO support and said his ministry was unable to provide assistance to IAV and enhance capacity of students and teachers.

He said the education ministry would soon form a board which would work for capacity building of not only students but individuals who never studied in this institute.
