Date de clôture : Signaler en cours en Juillet 2023

This project is a two-year economic strengthening programme, working directly with 4,934 smallholder farmers, traders, youth and women in three sub-counties of Garissa county, Kenya. Communities in target locations are vulnerable to climatic shocks, specifically drought, and lack sustainable, diversified income sources as well as reliable access to markets and financial services. Low income security, severe hunger levels and widespread poverty are the result. IRK will work with local communities across three impact areas : 1.) capacity building, specifically in the area of advanced, innovative livelihoods practices and vocational skills that are in high demand ; 2.) generating access to innovative and climate-smart technologies as well as financial services and markets that combined with improved capacity will result in higher productivity and incomes ; and 3.) creating an enabling environment and fostering supportive attitudes towards smallholder farmers, traders, youth and women. To ensure long-lasting economic empowerment, the project will focus on creating market linkages and network communities with private sector players. For youth and women, the project will offer a specific set of business/ vocational trainings in addition to explicitly promoting women ?s participation in all project activities. Key project achievements will include : ?ÿIncreased incomes and access to diversified food by the target populationÿ ?ÿWomen and youths have diversified, sector-specific livelihoods skills and knowledge. ?ÿYouth and women with business opportunities for increased employment ?ÿSmallholder farmers and youths with sustainable livelihood production and value addition practices. ?ÿSmall-holder farmers and youths have access to innovative climate smart technologies and inputs ?ÿIncreased Access to Financial Services and Markets by small-holder farmers and youth
