Address by Eritrea’s Minister of Agriculture To the UN Food Systems Summit

 Mr. Chairman,
H.E. António Guterres UN Secretary-General,
Excellencies,
Heads of State and Government,
Distinguished Heads of Delegation,
Ladies and Gentlemen!

Let me first extend my appreciation to the organizers of this important event.
In Eritrea, the challenge of food production starts from our location.  As we find ourselves in the Sahel region, which is a water-stressed zone, a huge work of soil and water conservation in general, and water harvesting in the form of ponds and dams in particular, is imperative.  Over the last three decades, the Government constructed hundreds of small and big multipurpose dams.  The big dams have adequate infrastructures around them in order to lay the ground for modern farming.
