Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca announced that an Interministerial Committee will be established next week, which will handle the effects of climate change in agriculture and the effects of drought in this sector.

“I had a discussion with [Agriculture] Minister Daea in the Government meeting on Wednesday, and after having conducted an analysis, we made the decision that as of next week we will establish an Interministerial Committee which will handle all the effects and impact of climate change in agriculture, and, as I pointed out, the effects that the pedological drought is producing,” the PM declared, on Friday, at the beginning of the Government session.

He added that the Ministry of Agriculture will be part of this committee, as well as the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Investments and European Projects, the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Entrepreneurship.

“In this way we want, on one hand, to identity measures that we can take, from both government funds, as well as from the state budget, but also from European funds, in order to develop irrigation systems, to support farmers that are affected by the drought and to develop the production capacity in the agri-food industry, just as we discussed, so that we can develop production capacities which can guarantee a larger added value,” the PM said, according to Agerpres.
