“Survival” Crops Provide Food During Times of Need

As we begin our news series on conflict and food, we would like to re-introduce a package of scripts from June 2003 that dealt with similar issues. “Rebuilding rural lives and livelihoods” is the theme of Package 67. It includes scripts that talk about community conflict resolution, health and food security in refugee camps, and re-establishing agriculture and community life following armed conflict. You can always view past scripts by subject, or in chronological order, at: http://www.farmradio.org/english/radio-scripts/.

The news story about farmers in Kenya who were forced to flee their land reminds us how quickly a conflict can put food security at risk. For this reason, we chose to highlight Script 2 from Package 67, which talks about crops that can survive harsh conditions, even when untended.
