BARBADOS – THE MINISTRY OF Agriculture will shortly be establishing a unit to mitigate the effects of climate change on the farming community.
This disclosure was made by chief agricultural officer, Lennox Chandler, on Thursday, as he spoke to agricultural specialists at a Drought Mitigation Seminar at Baobab Tower, Warrens, St Michael.
Giving the rationale for the creation of the unit, Chandler expressed the view that the region had not been aggressive in tackling climate change, or taking steps to create plans and policies to mitigate it.
