Alternative Livelihoods for Food and Income Security in four Indian Ocean Island Nations and Zanzibar - Phase 2
The overall goal of the project is to contribute toward increased food security and income-generation opportunities for smallholder farmers in the four Indian Ocean island nations and Zanzibar through improved bee-keeping technologies and pollination services.
Phase II will directly target 2,500 smallholder farming households in the five island nations, including 1,000 additional farmers and 1,500 beneficiaries previously targeted in the first phase. The project is estimated to reach a total of 12,500 individuals. Special emphasis will be given to women and youth: the project team will ensure that 40 per cent of participating farmers are women and at least 20 per cent are young.
