Govt hails WWF’s efforts in promoting environmentally-friendly farming

SIOMA District Commissioner Maurice Litula has appealed to the World-Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Zambia to help in sensitizing the communities around the district on how to live side by side with the animals.

The WWF Zambia team which is on a media tour in Western province has been sensitizing communities on a number of things including agriculture and conservation life.

But speaking when he welcomed the delegation in Sioma yesterday, DC Litula said the communities are looking forward to see the WWF going typically inside the areas where development has been lacking.

“We hope that your coming here will help sensitize our farmers in so many different things. Sentitize our communities on how to stay side by side with the animals. We have the biggest game management area in the country. And again we have the issue of conservation farming with our farmers, with the Ministry of agriculture,” Litula said.

“We are looking forward to also see the WWF go typically inside other areas where there is no such developments. You know communication is difficulty here, there are no radios but luckly enough government through ZICTA has started putting up some networks so that communication within our districts, our catchment areas will be easier.”

And Litula said the partnership between government and the WWF is a milestone to development in the district.

“You know communication also matters on the issues of agriculture, on issues of governance, health and everything. So to us, Sioma partnering with government and the WWF and other wings of development to us is a milestone, and we are happy,” said Litula.

    Wow! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
