UNITED NATIONS, May 31, 2017 -- A project promoted by China-UN Peace and Development Trust Fund was launched on Friday at the UN headquarters in a bid to help developing countries reduce hunger and explore renewable energy.
 
The project named Juncao Technology provides with an agricultural technology to cultivate edible and medicinal fungi by using wild grasses and herbal plants instead of trees or woods.
 
At a workshop held here, China's Ambassador to the UN Liu Jieyi said Juncao Technology is a priority project that the China-UN Fund is promoting, because it fits the needs of countries in Asia and Africa to eradicate poverty and it is a solution contributed by China to help them overcome development challenges.
 
The Juncao technology is developed based on research conducted by Professor Lin Zhanxi from China's Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University who invented the Juncao technology in the 1980s.
