Green Technologies to Facilitate Development of Value Chains Perishable Crops and Animal Products
The overall goal of the programme is to strengthen smallholders’ capacities to enhance food security and nutrition by sustainably reducing post-harvest losses, while enhancing market opportunities for their produce. The outcomes sought by the programme are: a sustainable reduction in post-harvest losses; and enhanced market opportunities for smallholder producers in the five target countries.
The target group will be comprised of: smallholder dairy farmers with at least three cows; milk collection points; satellite milk-chilling centres; poor people involved in fishing and related activities; fish transporters; and all smallholder farmers in the irrigation-cluster areas, with a focus on productive poor smallholders engaged in irrigated agriculture.
