Afghanistan

Titre : Support to Agriculture and Rural Marketing of strategic value chains in Herat and Bamyan, Afghanistan (SARM)

Pays : Afghanistan

Date/Durée : 2018

Description
The Project aims to improve agricultural production, productivity and marketing of small agro-producers in the two provinces of Herat and Bamyan in Afghanistan through the provision of agriculture services and inputs adopting a decentralized "Extension system" mechanism applied by MAIL at Provincial and District level. The Project will be focused on improving production and marketing of agriculture high value-chain, such as saffron, dairy products, horticulture products and possibly other products chosen by the beneficiaries at community level. The project will facilitate the small agroproducers to establish Common Interest Groups (CIG) with a view to improve economies of scale and market linkages with the private sector aimed at the commercialization of high value chain products. The project is targeting a total of approximately 5,000 farming direct beneficiaries, which implies approximately 30,000 indirect beneficiaries (average of 6 members per family). The priority of high value chain products is within the "National Comprehensive Agriculture Development Priority Program" of Agriculture and Rural Development cluster and it was discussed at the conference in Brussels on 5th October 2016. The Project is in line with the Sustainable Development Goals 1 and 2, UN 2015-2030.
