Descriptif
The project aims at strengthening the productive capacities and knowledge of smallholder farmers and their organisations, by promoting access to agricultural inputs and technologies as well as improving linkages to local markets. This will increase households’ purchasing power, also through the establishment of income generating activities and saving and credit systems. Moreover the initiative will enable communities hit by cyclical droughts to strengthen their livelihoods and develop their resilience to climate change. The project is structured along 3 components that focus on the creation and structuring of farmers organizations, on strengthening technical and institutional capacities of the organisations’ members, their leaders and local government staff, and finally on the provision of agricultural inputs and upscale of rural development best practices.
