Pro-Poor Horticulture Value Chains in Upper Egypt


Titre : Pro-Poor Horticulture Value Chains in Upper Egypt

Pays : Egypte

Identifiant : EGY/11/50/UND

Date/Durée : Start date : June 1, 2011 End date : September 30, 2013

Résumé partiel
Egypt’s recent economic growth has not sufficiently been pro-poor. Rather, poverty has expanded, especially in rural Upper Egypt which is facing two mutually reinforcing problems ; one that has to do with the overall efficiency of the value chain, and the other one has to do with the marginalization of the majority of small landholders. The purpose of the programme is to promote viable equitable partnerships between small farmers and private sector investors in efficient pro-poor horticulture value chains in three locations in the poorest Upper Egyptian Governorates. This shall be accomplished upon achieving the following outcomes : 1. Small farmers and agricultural workers are more equitably integrated into domestic and international value/supply chains of horticultural products through enhanced efficiency, productivity and viable business partnerships with private sector investors. 2. Entrepreneurial forms of organization established by small farmers. 3. Policy and regulatory changes to promote pro-poor private sector-based growth in Upper Egypt’s horticultural sector identified and discussed with the GOE. Previous donor assistance has organized small farmers in some locations in Upper Egypt in farmers’ associations (FAs). The Programme shall select three local FAs ; one in each governorate, representing 800 - 1000 small farmers growing horticultural crops from amongst the poorest governorates of Assiut, Sohag, Minya, Beni Suef and Qena
