Date:  4/11/2012 
To strengthen regional food security, Suriname has implemented several (Telefood) projects with support of the FAO. In this regard, some capacity building activities were carried out in collaboration with international organizations. To support producers, applied research for agriculture, livestock-farming and fishery sector was used to promote efficiency and food safety. A high-integrated professional laboratory, established in 2010, burned down but is now being reconstructed.

The Agricultural Credit Fund, with a revolving character, has been established in the interest of agricultural producers. Loans can be obtained against a low interest and smooth credit conditions, which guarantee sustainable investment in agriculture.

National research with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Bank has been conducted to anticipate the developments in the rural sector and to provide adaptation and mitigation in the coastal area to the benefit of sustainable agriculture. Occupants not living in the coastal area were trained to cultivate their grounds sustainably.
