The National Agricultural Extension and Research Programme (PNVRA), formerly among the most important at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (Minader), will restart its activities, after several years of hibernation. This is what transpired from a meeting held on 9 September in Yaounde, the Cameroonian capital.
This meeting enabled the recently appointed management of this programme, to receive a more detailed roadmap, which can be summarised as making this programme, “even more so than in the past, a real extension tool for agricultural research and adapted techniques for better yields”, the representative of the Ministry of Agriculture to this meeting recapped.
As a reminder, PNVRA is a consultancy-support system led by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Industries. Its global objective is the sustainable improvement in the productivity of agro-pastoral farms and fisheries, as well as the income of the producers.
