The role of agriculture in world’s economy cannot be denied. Agriculture not only provides food and raw material but also employment opportunities to a very large proportion of population. However, while some countries enjoy the new technological improvements and mechanical capabilities in agriculture, and decrease its proportion of the labour force accordingly; some of them, which are experiencing extreme hunger and poverty, still face problems of efficiency in the agricultural sector due to the lack of useful and efficient agricultural techniques to increase fertility. SESRIC, with its experience in contributing to the “Ministerial Conferences of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Food Security and Agricultural Development” has initiated the Agriculture Capacity Building Programme for OIC Member Countries (OIC-AgriCaB).
OIC-AgriCaB is expected to enhance the capacities’ of the related institutions in OIC Member Countries in wide range of areas such as efficient techniques of land, water and livestock management, fisheries and aquaculture and food security. Besides, a platform where best practices can be shared will be created.
