Stakeholders drawn from the agriculture development sector recently validated the draft report of sustainable intensification of integrated crop- small ruminant in The Gambia.

The forum held at NARI conference hall sought to avail participants with the opportunity to scrutinize the baseline draft report of the sustainable intensification of integrated crop-small ruminants and come up with recommendations.

Speaking at the opening forum, the Director-General of the National Agricultural Research Institutes (NARI), Dr. Babou Jobe, said the convergence is a clear indication of the commitment of the officials of the project for the sustainable intensification of crop and small ruminants in West Africa.

While emphasizing that the convergence is geared towards validating a very important draft report, he said, the baseline draft report is the primary key of the project, and that the baseline draft report is the centre of the gravity of the project.

According to him, the baseline draft report is fundamental to the implementation of the project, as it is the foundation of the monitoring and evaluation components of the project.

For his part, the Director of Research at NARI, Lamin Jobe, called on the need for the participants to do justice to the documents, by making a thorough review.

For her part, Mama Saho expressed appreciation for the turnout of the participants at the meeting.
