On July 3, 2017, the Feed the Future Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project brought together agricultural policy stakeholders in Delta State by connecting Faculty members at Delta State University’s Faculty of Agriculture with the leadership of the Delta State Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources including the Commissioner for Agriculture, Permanent Secretary and Directors as well as Planners and Policy Analysts in the ministry.
This was the first time the Commissioner would meet with the Faculty of Agriculture, Delta State University. The Dean of the faculty successfully introduced several research projects of the Faculty including the Cassava Trial Farm and got the Ministry’s endorsement of support. The project plans to support and strengthen this linkage.
