Tribal area beekeeping promo

A beekeeping promotion project in the Pesahwar tribal areas of Pakistan hopes to help increase Pakistan's honey exports from $3 million to $10 million in five or six years.

Over the next four years, there are plans to train 8,000 beekeepers, 1,000 of whom will be women, and 2,500 bee-boxes will be distributed at subsidised rates.

“Identity cards will be issued to the bee-keepers to ensure easy access to resources.” Mmm.
