At the Global Millets (Shree Anna) Conference in India, organized to commemorate the International Year of Millet 2023, the Integrated Agriculture Activity (IAA) highlighted the efforts of USAID and implementing partner IITA in ensuring food security in northeast Nigeria. The International Millet Conference took place on 18-19 March at the Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi. The conference was themed “Enhancing Productivity and Value Addition in Millets”.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the conference, explaining that cultivating millet in larger quantities can contribute to food security and help provide more nourishment to people of all ages. That’s why India and its partners, including Nigeria, are educating the world about the wonders of the crop.
