In a bid to attract investors into the agricultural sector, the Ogun state government has trained farmers and other stakeholders on the development of toolkits for the implementation of the Framework for Responsible and Inclusive Land-Intensive Agriculture (FRILIA) principles in the state.

The training, which was declared open by Mr. Samuel Adeogun, the Permanent Secretary of the State Ministry of Agriculture, reported that the developed toolkits will help us achieve a consistent implementation of the FRILIA principle.

Mr. Oladipupo Sofowora, the state consultant on FRILIA, disclosed that the toolkits are aimed at simplifying land management, ensuring responsible investment, and promoting community development in the state’s agricultural sector.

The FRILIA consultant noted that the stakeholders were being exposed to the toolkits and templates so that they knew what toolkit they could use to engage with the government, community, and investors, adding that the state had been recognized as a strategic hub for attracting agricultural investments, which focus on crops, aquaculture, livestock, and horticulture.

Sofowora gave word of assurance that the toolkits, which included stakeholder engagement, community needs assessment, grievance redress mechanisms, involuntary resettlement, as well as environmental and social risk management, among others, would be used in addressing issues concerning community development, environmental sustainability, and safeguards for the community.

According to him, the capacity building would enhance the smooth implementation of the FRILIA principles in the state and also improve the architectural land management system being put in place by the current administration of Prince Dapo Abiodun.

“So, when an investor comes in and he knows that there is a framework for him to operate and that there is an agency of government to attend to him, it becomes easier, he stated.
