Cordillera Highland Agricultural Resource Management Project

Cordillera Highland Agricultural Resource Management Project


The project built on the Highland Agriculture Development Project, which helped increase production, created employment opportunities and diminished income and development gaps in the project area. In its second phase, the project emphasized environmental concerns, better use of existing staff resources and strengthening of local government units. Its primary objective was to reduce poverty in the region by increasing the disposable incomes of smallholder families. To achieve that objective, it focused on promoting sustainable resource management, protecting the environment and mitigating adverse effects of development, strengthening existing institutions, involving poor people in planning and implementing activities, and improving their access to formal and informal credit.

Project activities included:

  • mobilizing communities and improving natural resource management, with a focus on poor people’s participation in community-based forest management 
  • developing rural infrastructure, rehabilitating existing roads to improve access to agricultural production areas
  • building and rehabilitating communal irrigation systems and providing villages with a safe water supply
  • providing agricultural support services, including training and research
  • assisting in project management and coordination
