Présentation
The project builds on the results and recommendations stemming from the FAO-UNIDO jointly implemented initiative “Integrated Food Security in Kassala State”, carried out between 2011 and 2014. It aims to contribute in improving livelihoods, food and nutrition security of the target population in Kassala State, especially for women and youth. More specifically, by focusing on three strategic components (value-chain integration and agriculture productivity improvement at the household level ; community participation in entrepreneurship development ; and access to finance through local microfinance institutions), the project intends to create sustainable job opportunities and foster inclusive economic growth in rural areas. Over a time-span of 12 months, the project will reach 2,000 beneficiaries (small-scale farmers, micro-enterprises, women and young people), by partnering with public institutions, local community-based organizations and the private sector.
