KARACHI: The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, with the financial assistance of the European Union (EU), will work to improve land tenancy for the landless farmers under the project ‘Improved Land Tenancy in Sindh Province (ILTS)’. Landless farmers in Sindh usually have access to land as tenants through verbal agreements between them and the landlords. These farmers often end-up as vulnerable “bonded” workers. This project was launched at a ceremony in Karachi where Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah was the chief guest. An amount of €4 million will be spent over the next four years to benefit 12,600 households in eight districts of Sindh including Dadu, Jamshoro, Larkana, Matiari, Mirpur Khas, Tando Allahyar, Tando Muhammad Khan and Sujawal.
