(Business in Cameroon) - About 4,000 additional hectares of lands have been rehabilitated for rice-production in the Far-North region. This was revealed by Marc Samantana, managing director of Société d’expansion et de modernisation de la riziculture de Yagoua (SEMRY).
“You know that at least 4,000 families can use two thousand hectares. When you multiply this by ten, you can notice that we are saving many residents from famine”, he said.
For the record, these lands were rehabilitated in the framework of the flood prevention urgency plan PULCI, implemented in the Far-North by Cameroon, with World Bank’s financial support.
In the framework of PULCI, infrastructures such as dikes and irrigation equipment will be constructed in the rice plots.
