Within the framework of the project on enhancing the resilience and sustainability of the agricultural sector in the Arab region, ESCWA, in cooperation with the Arab Organization for Agricultural Development, organized a national consultation session on the agricultural sector in Algeria. The session is part of a series of five national consultation sessions in Arab countries.
The consultation session considered ways to bolster Algeria's agricultural sector in the face of climate change, the unsustainable use of natural resources and the COVID-19 pandemic. The session, which gathered key national stakeholders from the agriculture sector, in addition to experts from research centers and academia, representatives and experts from the private sector and the FAO office in Algiers, resulted in practical recommendations and the identification of national priorities.
It is expected that these five national consultation sessions in the targeted countries will result in a comprehensive document that identifies priorities and recommendations for the region's agricultural sector.
