Lusa - Business News - Guinea-Bissau: Cashew campaign failure could lead to hunger - UN




Bissau, May 29, 2020 (Lusa) - A failure in the cashew campaign in Guinea-Bissau, due to the new coronavirus pandemic, could lead to greater food insecurity due to the negative impact on the agricultural campaign, the UN said.

A report on the socio-economic impact of Covid-19 in Guinea-Bissau, released by the UN Development Programme, pointed out that despite good prospects for cashew production in 2020, the country is expected to have the lowest sales rate in years due to the new coronavirus pandemic and the inability of farmers to store nuts during the rainy season, which begins later this month.

The country's economy depends on the sale of cashew nuts, as well as about 80% of the country's population. The campaign, which should have begun in March, did not begin until April, but traditional buyers of the product are not in the country because of the measures imposed as part of the fight against Covid-19 prevention.

Closed since March, the borders of Guinea-Bissau only reopened this week, but people can only enter the country if they present the negative test for the new coronavirus.

According to the report, although the reference price for the sale of kilograms of cashew nuts has been set at 375 francs CFA (€0.57), farmers are selling at 200 francs CFA (about €0.30) to meet immediate food security needs.

The low revenue from cashew sales will harm the farming season, where the population will get more money and food.

"Cashew cash shortages will affect farmers' ability to finance the farming season, including buying seeds, recruiting seasonal workers, and renting farm equipment," the document said.

The difficulties farmers will face could reduce agricultural production this year and next and lead in the long term to effects on the already precarious food security, the report added.

The decline in agricultural production, according to the document, will also lead to an increase in imports and an increase in prices due to the depreciation of the export currency which is cashew nuts.

The report said that the World Food Programme provides meals to 874 of the country's 2,000 schools, benefiting some 180,000 children.

With schools closed due to the pandemic, parents' difficulties in feeding their families increase.

Guinea-Bissau has almost 1,200 covid-19 infections and eight fatalities.

In Africa, there are 3,790 confirmed deaths in more than 129,000 infected in 54 countries, according to the most recent statistics on the pandemic in that continent.

Worldwide, according to an assessment by the AFP news agency, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused more than 357,000 deaths and infected more than 5.7 million people in 196 countries and territories.
