Strengthening the Agriculture Sector in Afghanistan (SASA)

Afghanistan

Titre : Strengthening the Agriculture Sector in Afghanistan (SASA)

Country : Afghanistan

Project start/end date : 01/05/2012 - 30/09/2014

Description
The impact of the project will be increased productivity and value of agriculture in Afghanistan. Its outcome is an evidence base and delivery model to achieve this.

Outputs attributable to UK support :
1 . Output 1 - Agricultural Support Programme (ASP), Bamyan : DFID will provide £3 million over three years to a programme led by the New Zealand Agency for International Development (NZAID). Expected results are increased productivity and value of agriculture, food security and household incomes in Bamyan for participating communities. Progress will be measured against increased potato and wheat yields ; regenerated area of rangeland vegetation ; and increased co-operative incomes.
2. Output 2 – MAIL Change Management : DFID will give £9 million to a total project fund of approximately £17.5 million over three years. From this we expect to see MAIL better able to deliver the National Priority Programmes (NPPs). Progress will be measured against increased budget execution rates ; structural reform of provincial DAIL offices ; and increased pace of policy development.
3. Output 3 – Support to the DAILs : DFID will provide £750,000 over three years. This will improve technical capacity and responsiveness to farmers established in Bamyan and Helmand DAILs. Progress will be measured against increasing number of university graduates hired by Bamyan DAIL offices ; increasing numbers of people perceiving the DAIL positively in Helmand ; and increasing number of projects implemented in coordination with NGOs in Bamyan and with the private sector in Helmand.
4. Output 4 – Evidence-based Model : DFID will provide £180,000 over three years to produce a scalable evidence base of best agricultural practice established to increase household incomes. Progress will be measured against the number of examples of best practice from ASP disseminated in Bamyan, and the number of examples of best practice from change management and institutional reform between MAIL and Helmand and Bamyan DAILs.

Project budget : £12,930,000
