By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise (MAFSE) said it was informing farmers and producers that damage assessment is being carried out in areas that were affected by Hurricane Lisa, according to a MAFSE social media post.
“Farmers who live in remote areas and were affected by the storm are also advised to report damages caused to their crops or livestock to the Agriculture Office in their district,” said MAFSE.
Agriculture Minister Jose Abelardo Mai said the damage assessment report will then be submitted to Cabinet.
“That is submitted to Cabinet, and I believe that Cabinet decides if we submit it to the International Financial Institutions (IFIs),” said Minister Mai.
“We first have to complete the assessment and then we put a dollar value to that and then submit it to the IFIs.”
Minister Mai said the objective is to assist farmers who have lost or suffered damage to their homes, barns, greenhouses, and their crops such as papayas, bananas, plantains, peppers, tomatoes, cabbages, and onions.
