AmCham Sri Lanka hosted a discussion for its members representing leading corporates with the Urban Harvest Project Initiated by the Colombo Municipal Council [CMC] and supported by the ONE Team. The Urban Harvest project is aimed at implementing a comprehensive strategy to address the impending food shortage, initially in the Colombo urban area, by reducing food wastage and encouraging the practice of home and community gardens. The purpose of the engagement was to provide the Private Sector with the information and tools, and an opportunity to play a pivotal role in reducing the impact of this crisis through their involvement and investment of time and resources through sponsoring/partnering community gardens and corporate plots, as well as providing funding for seed-starter packs to be distributed to the population in Colombo.
