Zone géographique : Kandahar, Helmand, Zabul and Uruzgan provinces

Durée : October 2013 – October 2018

USAID Regional Agricultural Development Program-South (RADP-S) promotes inclusive and sustainable economic growth for rural Afghans in Kandahar, Helmand, Zabul and Uruzgan provinces. The program supports farmers and small and medium scale agribusinesses to improve production, processing and commodity sales.

Food and economic security : • Train farmers in improved productivity and production practices, particularly in the wheat, high value crops and livestock sectors. • Improve market value chains so farmers can better respond to market demand. • Increase personal incomes and nutrition for farming families. • Post-harvest storage capacity : Increase volume of products available for off-season sales and consumption by improving post-harvest technologies, particularly packaging and warehousing. • Market-led agricultural growth : Improve market efficiency by identifying strong local agricultural firms to champion reforms, and helping those firms lead market growth. • Women in agricultural value chains : • Train women in production and post-harvest storage techniques, product value adding processes, and marketing techniques to sell outside their home. • Link women to other value chain actors and increase their nutritional awareness. • Focus project activities on improved women’s income, food security, and productivity. • Enabling policy and regulatory environment : Help the Afghan government draw up modern and enforceable agricultural regulations. • Improve public and private sector collaboration : Facilitate increased coordination between the private sector, civil society, the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock (MAIL), and provincial Directorate of Agricultural, Irrigation, and Livestock (DAIL).

Financement : $125 million
