In line with its vision and mission on Climate, the Climate Change Adaptation
and Agri-Business Support Programme (CASP) has expressed its readiness
to collaborate with the International Centre for Agricultural Research
in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) on soil management and water conservation in
Jigawa State.

The National Coordinator of CASP, Lawal Idda, revealed this to
newsmen yesterday in Dutse.

He noted that CASP is funded by the International Fund for
Agricultural Development (IFAD), a UN agency known for its dedication
to empowering rural dwellers for food security optimisation.

Iddah explained that the partnership became imperative due to
the negative impact of climate change on soil and water across the
nation.

The coordinator affirmed that CASP-IFAD had signed a 3-year Memorandum of
Understanding (MoU) with ICARDA on assisting farmers in about seven
states of Nigeria on soil management and water conservation.
