        (11 January 2018, Male, Maldives): The Honourable Minister of Fisheries and Agriculture, Dr Mohamed Shainee on behalf of the Government of Maldives, and the Representative of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) for Sri Lanka and the Maldives, Ms Nina Brandstrup, signed the new FAO Country Programming Framework (CPF) 2018-2020, a tool used by FAO and the Government to define the priorities of FAO’s assistance to Maldives. The new CPF is fully aligned with the development objectives of the Government of Maldives as well as with the overall Strategic Framework of FAO and the United Nations Development Assistance Framework 2016-20.

The three-year CPF revolves around three country outcomes – 1) food production contributes to shared prosperity and household wellbeing 2) rural livelihoods are more resilient to climate change, and the environment and natural resources are more sustainably managed 3) increased capacity of concerned stakeholders to collect, analyse, and utilize data and information.

Dr Mohamed Shainee, confirmed his support to the new FAO CPF and expressed his appreciation for the continued collaboration between his Ministry and FAO aimed at bringing technical knowledge and innovations to the country. Ms Nina Brandstrup noted that the CPF sets a path for the support of FAO to the Government of Maldives to reduce poverty and enhance food and nutrition security, while working to increase, diversify and add value to fisheries, aquaculture and agriculture while increasing resilience to climate shocks.

The CPF will be implemented in the broadest possible partnerships and alignment with the joint efforts of the Government of the Maldives and its development partners.
