Mr. Kafeero revealed that the FAO will work in tandem with the Tanzania Meteorological Agency (TMA) to ensure that important information regarding weather patterns and climate related changes, concerning farmers is communicated to them in a timely fashion.
 
The government is working with the US Department of Agriculture and several other partners in a bid to achieve this goal.

“The issue of climate and smatter agriculture and improving competitiveness in rice production are well highlighted in ASDP II, thus this is a good sign for implementation of the programme,” according to Eng. Mtigumwe. The agreement is expected to benefit the implementation of the Agricultural Sector Development Program.
