A call has been made to the United Nations to establishment of the International Year of Camels, reports NaijaAgroNet.

The President Bolivia, Evo Morales made this proposal during a meeting with the Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organistion (FAO), Graziano da Silva.
NaijaAgroNet also reports that the Bolivian President call came on the heels of a similar call to the UN in 2013 for an International Year of Quinoa.
The country, NaijaAgroNet gathered hopes this call will galvanise spotlight on the contribution these hardy animals can make to supporting farming and food security in other world regions, especially in developing countries.
The two men also discussed conducting a joint study to review the impacts of the International Year of Quinoa and facilitate more widespread production and consumption of the highly nutritious, grain-like crop sometimes called “Andean superfood.”
