Reading Time: 1 minute

Kenya has committed to intensifying its partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) to increase agricultural productivity.

President William Ruto said the renewed collaboration will help Kenya produce more food to feed everyone in the wake of worsening food security in the country.

He said the move will sustainably eliminate hunger and tackle malnutrition in the country.

He was speaking at State House, Nairobi, on Monday when he held a meeting with FAO Director-General Qu Dongyu.

Appreciating FAO's support to Kenya during the current drought crisis, President Ruto asked the Organisation to expand its technical and financial support for the government's efforts to address the food security situation.

"We affirm Kenya's commitment towards ensuring food security, gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls," he said.

He appreciated the support by FAO to the government in developing Kenya's Migratory and Invasive Pest Management strategy (2022 - 2027).
