Despite the political interference that caused many of FSAC recommendations to be overturned at the highest levels, mush was achieved and lessons learned. To capture this, the Ministry of Agriculture will be holding a cyclone Simulation/Lessons Learned activity with all cluster members from Government, civil society, the private sector ad development partners from 10-11 July 2017.
