WAFM to build capacity of West African Grains Traders in tackling Fall Army Worm menace



The agreement on capacity building was reached by the two organizations in Lome in March during a meeting between the Team Leader of WAFM, Terry Lacey and Policy Facility Manager, Noel Kossonou on one hand and the President Soumalia Sanon and and his team on the other hand.

The two organizations explored areas of collaboration aiming at increasing grain production, processing and cross-border trade in the sub-region. After a fruitful discussion, WAFM and WAGN agreed to collaborate on supporting WAGN increase its membership base as well as addressing the  the fall army worm menace in the region; and the issue of aflatoxin in maize and other grains.
