 The second phase of the EU-funded ENPARD South Support Programme (ESSP II) has been launched in Egypt, at a seminar co-organised by the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation of Egypt.

The meeting brought together 25 participants representing different categories of stakeholders, including representatives from ministries, researchers, NGOs, unions, agriculture cooperatives and others.
Throughout the exchange, the themes raised in the preparatory meeting in September 2015 were discussed and accepted as the main issues to focus on for the year to come:
·      Good Agricultural Practices and preservation of the environment ;
·      Contract farming ;
·      Extension services.
ENPARD has been designed to support the EU’s Southern Neighbourhood countries in their agricultural and rural development. The initiative aims to support the formulation and implementation of renewed public policies in order to meet the challenges of food security, diversification of rural economies and governance in agriculture and management of rural areas.
