Market-oriented Smallholder Agriculture Project

Market-oriented Smallholder Agriculture Project

The project's objective is to increase the agricultural production of smallholders in rural areas in the provinces of Bié, Huambo and Malanje. The 25 comunas and municípios selected by the project are extremely poor, and the majority of households in the area are made up of formerly internally displaced persons who have taken up farming to provide a livelihood for themselves. The average farm is between 1 and 2 hectares, but in some villages a significant number of people do not have access to even 1 hectare.

The project area is home to about 80 per cent of Angola's food insecure population and 68 per cent of its most vulnerable people. The area has a potential for long-term sustainable development. The project focuses on increasing agricultural productivity by building farmers' capacity, by supporting seed multiplication and livestock production, and by supporting and strengthening extension services that respond to the communities' needs. It works with farmers' groups and traders to enhance marketing of agricultural produce, storage and access to local markets.
