MAPUTO, July 28 (Xinhua) -- The World Food Program (WFP) has started a project worth about 3 million U.S. dollars to help drought-prone regions in Mozambique in building resilient agriculture, the national radio station RM reported on Tuesday.

The EU funded project Pro-resilience Action, aiming at providing support to rural technicians and helping them improve climate-resilient production skills, will be carried out in at least two phases in a period of three years.

The first phase of the project is currently underway in drought-prone regions of the southern province of Gaza, WFP's program officer and coordinator Daniela Cuellar Vargas told RM.

"The first phase of the project will be handled by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and will reach 40 farming schools, equivalent to a thousand families from the districts of Guija and Mavalane in Gaza," said Vargas.

She added that the second phase will be broader, and the systems to be established will benefit more regions of the country.

Technical assistance will also be provided to the Mozambican government in the establishment of a warning system against droughts, said the coordinator. Enditem
