Cabinet Reviews Performance of Agriculture Sector, Community Engagement Forum, Mandates Key Decisions

first_imgAn Executive Mansion release reports that the Cabinet yesterday carefully reviewed the performance of its Agriculture and Agro-processing Task Force with emphasis on highlighting the most critical challenges to agricultural concessions and tree crop sectors with a view to finding solutions. The Cabinet mandated further review of the community engagement forum implementation agenda and solicited inputs on corrective actions from members.The agriculture and agro-processing sectors underscored the potential for creating new jobs and improved livelihoods through agriculture value chain and manufacturing with emphasis on oil palm, cocoa, fisheries, aquaculture and rice production amid challenges faced in the iron and rubber sectors.According to the release, cabinet received updates on the status of the Outgrower Program for Community Oil Palm and advanced steps for the government to continue the Outgrower program in a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable way. Progress has been recorded on the outgrower model development with multi-stakeholder alignment. The Cabinet was also briefed on benefits to be accrued from the Outgrower Scheme that would lead to empowering rural communities with land and high value crop ownership and skills, bring additional and near term revenues to government and will send strong signals to national and international communities on forest conservation and economic empowerment.Meanwhile, Cabinet also reviewed a proposal for its aggressive community engagement forum aimed at using various channels to communicate progress made, existing challenges and realistic targets set for implementation. The overall objective of the community engagement forum was to bring members of the Cabinet face-to-face with various socialinstitutions and ordinary Liberians to engage openly and dialogue on where we were and where we are to date. The Cabinet members were subsequently briefed on the arrival in country of the contractors that will demobilize the existing Defense Ministry structure that will pave the way for the construction of the Ministerial Complex in Congo Town outside Monrovia. Cabinet has mandated detailed consultations and increased contributions to ensure an inclusive participation in the community engagement forum process.

Floodwaters remain high, Deep South still cut off

first_imgRegion 9 flooding …roads washed away Several parts of Deep South Rupununi, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) continues to be cut off from central Lethem due to severe flooding in the region, which has washed away a number of roads. Additionally, the Civil Defence Commission (CDC) said the water level continues to fluctuate, making it tough for them to assess the level of damage.Flooding in TabatingaThe flooding is as a result of the overtopping of several rivers, particularly the Takutu River, due to heavy rainfall in the region and over in neighbouring Brazil which resulted in overtopping of the Rio Brancho River. At present, 59 persons have been evacuated and placed in three shelters which were established, and they are being tended by the region with support from the CDC.The Guyana Defence Force (GDF) has also been providing support through a boat shuttle service for residents from 06:00h to 18:00h every day.Deep SouthReports reaching this publication state that the Deep South Rupununi’s main access road en-route to Aishalton is partly washed away. However, vehicles are presently traversing on the back road through Karaudanawa to get to Aishalton so that they can access those communities.A section of the washed away roadIn addition, residents who live in low-lying areas in close proximity to the Moco Moco and Tabatinga Creeks in the municipality of Lethem have been evacuated and are being housed in the temporary shelters. Nevertheless, a number of the residents have chosen to remain in their homes since the water continues to fluctuate.Guyana Times was told that while residents in the some of the Indigenous communities may not be severely affected, their farmlands would have been affected. Toshaos have since been tasked with the responsibility of assessing and producing the number of farmlands that were affected in their respective communities to the RDC.On Saturday, acting CDC Director, Major Kester Craig told this publication that the Commission is actively monitoring the situation in collaboration with the Regional Disaster Management Committee. He added that they will continue providing relief supplies to those in the shelters.On Friday, Minister of State Joseph Harmon led a team to the region to assess the situation. The Minister said the current weather patterns in the region and in Brazil will see the water rising and receding at frequent intervals; but with a coordinated approach, some semblance of order can exist. Minister Harmon noted that, overall, he is satisfied with the arrangements put in place, as the response and preparation this year has far surpassed those that were in place last year.The CDC, on Friday, carried in the supplies requested by the region, including water purification tablets, collapsible bottles, detergents and cleaning supplies, beddings and blankets, among other materials.Scenes from the flooded regionMinister Harmon noted that since the flooding is expected to be an annual occurrence, the Administration will work to fast track the construction of a bond for the CDC in the region, which would provide storage for materials in the event of a disaster.last_img read more

Leave the menu planning, shopping to us

first_imgOWNERS: Roni Piterman and Ari Kosmal ESTABLISHED: Jan. 2007 NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES: Eight DESCRIBE YOUR BUSINESS: We provide a means for busy people to buy meals at a price that’s little more than that of groceries. We do the menu planning, shopping, chopping and cleanup. The customer comes in to assemble the meals, then takes them home either to freeze or cook. For those who don’t wish to participate in the meal assembly process, we offer a pickup service called “Your Secret Service,” where our staff does the prep, and the customer simply schedules a pickup time. IS THIS YOUR FIRST BUSINESS? Yes BUSINESS NAME: Your Dinner Secret BUSINESS ADDRESS: 20929 Ventura Blvd. #22, Woodland Hills, CA 91364 PHONE: (818) 888-6338 WEB SITE: www.yourdinnersecret.com, info@yourdinnersecret.com WHY DID YOU START THIS BUSINESS? My sister and I were raised in the San Fernando Valley and have always wanted to run our own business. Our mother and father worked together in their own business for more than 30 years. I guess it’s in our blood. WHERE DID YOU GET THE IDEA? We went to a philanthropic fundraiser at a similar business more than two years ago. The concept is aimed at bringing families back to the dinner table by allowing busy moms a convenient means for making dinners at home. HOW LONG WAS IT FROM CONCEPT TO OPENING? A bit more than two years. WHAT DID YOU DO DURING THAT TIME? We traveled to a number of similar businesses in other states to talk to the owners about the details and what it was like. We researched the market, developed a business plan, secured a location, hired designers, engineers and contractors, took the plans through the health department and building and safety, built out the location and lined up vendors. WHAT WERE YOUR START-UP COSTS AND HOW DID YOU FINANCE THE BUSINESS? About $250,000. We financed it with home equity lines of credit and loans from our family. WHO DID YOU RELY ON FOR ADVICE? People already in the business, lawyers, real estate professionals, restaurant and kitchen designers and, of course, our parents. WHAT HADN’T YOU CONSIDERED BEFORE OPENING? The extensive delays caused by the Department of Building and Safety. We hoped to open more than six months earlier. WHAT IS YOUR EXPECTED REVENUE THIS YEAR? Once we grow this location into a stable, profitable entity, we hope to open at least two more locations. We’re already training potential management personnel to run our other kitchens in the future. We want to be contributors to the long-term economic growth of the San Fernando Valley and give back to the community. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
