Deputy Minister Landers expressed South Africa’s pleasure that the financial contribution the country made to the WFP, including the recent R180 million for the Lesotho project, will not only create a market for our smallholder producers, but capacitate them in terms of understanding the food security markets and trade, in particular for the emerging farmers in the previously disadvantaged communities of our provinces.
In his concluding remarks, Deputy Minister expressed South Africa’s appreciation for the work of the United Nations Humanitarian Response Depot (UNHRD) networks under the auspices of the WFP, which have an excellent track record of supporting the humanitarian community and the increasingly important role of its emergency preparedness and response strategy.
Furthermore, to support the broader objectives of the said networks, the South African Government, in view of the necessary infrastructure and industrial prowess it has, including the capacity to sustain a logistics hub, feels that there is an imperative need for the WFP to provide full support to the country’s efforts to establish the new Logistic Hub in South Africa as part of UNHRD.
