World Bank to boost climate-smart agriculture in Sri Lanka Featured

World Bank Managing Director for Operations Anna Bjerof and Regional Vice-President South Asia Martin Raiser, yesterday conducted a field visit to the Climate Smart Farmer Training School in Thirappane.

The purpose of their visit was to assess the progress of the Climate Smart Irrigated Agriculture Project (CSIAP).

Bjerde’s visit to Sri Lanka serves as a confirmation of the World Bank’s support for this initiative.

The CSIAP has undertaken an ambitious initiative to establish a comprehensive Farmer Training School known as “Deshaguna Suhuru Govi Puhunu Pasala” in Mannakkulama Village, Thirappane, situated in the Anuradhapura District.

This visit by Bjerde and Raiser and a delegation from the World Bank, Asia Development Bank, JICA and USAID underscores the World Bank’s and other partners’ commitment to supporting initiatives that aim to improve the agricultural sector and enhance climate resilience in Sri Lanka’s dry zone.
