Descriptif
USAID has donated USD 620,000.00 (a contribution equivalent to EUR 540,939.60) to DCA with the purpose of helping farmers who have been constrained in productivity of crops and their livelihoods as a result of climatic or economic shock. Rural Ethiopia is highly affected by food insecurity caused by several reasons such as land degradation, recurrent drought, poor and inadequate management of risk and population pressures. This has resultantly led to low crop production and productivity. In order to address this challenge, this project will introduce quinoa and promote amaranth, both highly stress tolerant (drought, frost, salinity, pest, etc.) and nutritious food crops. The project will be implemented in three phases. In this phase being the first phase, the project will build on results of a DCA-funded research project and will conduct further testing and piloting of quinoa and amaranth varieties. DCA’s implementing partners in the project are Action for Development (AFD) and Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus (EECMY).
