Zimbabwean farmers helped to increase productionListen /
Smallholder farmers in Zimbabwe are getting a helping hand from the European Union to increase their crop and livestock production.
The EU has given $19 million, which is being channelled through the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), to help Zimbabwean farmers to commercialize their production.
FAO says the programme will be implemented over a 4-year period in the provinces of Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South and Manicaland.
To find out more about this initiative, Sandra Ferrari spoke with David Phiri, the FAO's representative in Zimbabwe and Sub Regional Coordinator for Southern African.
