Pro-Poor Horticulture Value Chains in Upper Egypt


Titre : Pro-Poor Horticulture Value Chains in Upper Egypt

Pays : Egypte

Date : 1 January 2010 - 31 December 2013

The programme contributes to the UNDAF outcome 3. By 2011, regional human development disparities are reduced, including reducing the gender gap and improving environmental sustainability. The programme also contributes to eradicating extreme poverty and hunger (MDG-1) by primarily targeting poverty in areas with more than 65% vulnerability rank. The programme further promotes gender equality (MDG-3). Women are officially registered at below 18% of the work force while in reality accounting more than 75% of the labour force in agriculture. It also aims at developing global partnerships for development (MDG-8). The programme will contribute to ensuring environmental sustainability (MDG-7) as tracing agricultural products has a positive impact on the environmental and the quality of the produce. In addition, shifting the farmers’ attention to serve higher quality markets and export markets will lead them to cleaner production (organic or just with monitored levels of pesticides).

The purpose of the Pro-poor horticulture value chains in Upper Egypt joint programme is to promote viable equitable partnerships between small farmers and private sector investors in Upper Egypt. The programme supports small farmers through their Farmers Associations to deliver needed business services thus enabling them to participate in the governance of the supply chain.
