President Ndayishimiye said he was satisfied with the achievements of that community, especially as they are part of the government’s policy that encourages Burundians to use irrigation during the dry season to increase production.

In general, President Ndayishimiye commended the role of the Catholic Church in the economic growth of Burundi. He encouraged the christians of that branch to continue on the same momentum and import agro-pastoral techniques into their households. He recalled that Burundians have an obligation to exploit the land to live and make theirs live.

He warned that this exploitation should not be done in any case in anarchy. He pointed out that the floor should be preserved so that it continues to produce.

That is how he invited to trace level curves to counter erosion. ” The government’s objective is that soon no drop of rainwater leaves the village to finish its run in a river, “insisted President Ndayishimiye.

He also addressed the subject of reforestation where he arrested farmers to plant agroforest trees and fixture herbs on the contour lines.
