$14-BILLION PROGRAM TO EASE FOOD SHORTAGE

THE Asian Development Bank (ADB) on Tuesday rolled out a $14-billion program to address food shortage issues in the Asia-Pacific region.   According to a statement, the lender said the comprehensive assistance program would help 1.1 billion people in the region who lack access to a healthy diet.   The ADB said the program would enhance long-term food security through new and ongoing agriculture inputs, food production and distribution projects.   The multilateral lender added that the program would help the most vulnerable, particularly women.   The assistance under the program will start this year and continue through 2025, drawn mainly from ADB's sovereign and private sector operations.   https://www.manilatimes.net/2022/09/28/business/top-business/14-billion-program-to-ease-food-shortage/1860085 (ICE SINGAPORE)
