By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Servulo Baeza, the Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise (MAFSE), is in Egypt as part of the first-ever delegation of Ministers and Vice-Ministers of the Central American Agricultural Council (CAC- Consejo Agropecuario Centroamericano) attending COP27, the climate change summit.
“These meetings will serve to present and discuss challenges and situations faced by member nations of SICA/CAC in developing sustainable and efficient agricultural systems,” said MAFSE.
MAFSE said this is the first time Central American agriculture ministers and officials are participating in COP discussions. They are expected to be in at least 15 high-level roundtable discussions that will deal with issues such as sustainable agriculture and the effects of climate change.
“[The] Central American nations hope they can sensitize the rest of the world to the fact that while the area is not a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, it is an important producer of food to sustain the vulnerable population of the area and year after year has to deal with the increasing effects of climate change that threaten livelihoods,” MAFSE said.
Baeza and the Central American Agricultural Council delegation return on November 16 from Egypt.
