    Hoping the administration of this program will be supportive of Dominica’s drive to be climate resilient and include organically certifiable inputs, untreated seeds, and advice and decision-making consistent with supporting diversity (in crops, techniques, etc.) and island food/nutritional security. Am grateful for DominicaNewsOnline publicizing programs online. Wishing MoA (and other Government agencies and commercial Dominica utilities would make access to get and submit required documents available on line so people’s, as well as Agency/business’ time, energy, gas, etc. not be wasted by having to trek to Roseau.

    After Hurricane Maria many farmers who support the UWP were not included among those who received assistance in the first round of disbursements. Honourable Hector John and others sought to give the impression that this was because of “political victimization”. However it turned out that those farmers had not submitted the required applications, quite likely because they were ignorant of the procedures since Q95 did not broadcast the regular press briefings which were meant to keep citizens informed about such matters!
    I trust that Q95 will give full publicity to this new, exciting programme so as to ensure that those qualified farmers whose radios are tuned in exclusively to that Radio station will not miss out on the opportunities being made available thanks to World Bank funds negotiated by Prime Minister Skerrit at a time when Mr. Linton sought to undermine his efforts by going to New York to announce to the world that Dominica was committing “crimes against humanity”.

    These prints are too small to read. Kindly ask to have the font size increased please. Zooming does not help either.

    ADMIN: Thank you for your feedback. We’ve done as you requested, it should be updated shortly.
