PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: Farmers of the Toledo district were today part of a series of countrywide consultations on climate change and its effects on the agriculture sector.
A mango tree in front of the home of one of the leaders in the village of Silver Creek was the venue for today’s forum.
It was a meeting devoid of any political tint whatsoever and gave the farmers an opportunity to be a part of something that will affect them and their way of living.
The survey is being conducted by the Belize Enterprise for Sustainable Technology. Dennis Jones is the Executive Director of BEST.
Jones says the findings of the survey should be ready for delivery to government by the middle of the year.
