Lesotho now implementing Phytosanitary Border Inspection
The Kingdom of Lesotho has recently implemented the Phytosanitary Border Inspection Project within it’s borders. This will ensure that all importers and exporters of agricultural goods must now fully declare their products with the aim of limiting the introduction of alien pests (insects, foreign seeds/weeds and nematodes, etc.) which may have significant negative economical and/or food security impacts on the country. This is inline with World Trade Organisation (WTO) requirements, a body that Lesotho formally joined in 1995. For more information regarding the project please visit in the links below.
The Centre for Coordination of Agricultural Research and Development for Southern Africa (CCARDESA) was founded by SADC member states to harmonise the implementation of agricultural research and development (R&D) in the SADC region. CCARDESA intends to promote innovative research, technology generation and adoption for sustainable agricultural development through affective partnership and capacity building.
“A food secure and prosperous Southern African region with vibrant rural livelihoods.”
