Sustainable Agriculture Investments and Livelihoods Project
This project is designed to enable smallholder farmers to increase their incomes and profitability, and diversify their livelihoods. The project aims to strengthen smallholder institutions, improve agricultural production and marketing, and build capacities for employment and enterprise development. It has four components:
- Community and livelihood development
- Agricultural development and diversification
- Rural financial services
- Project management.
The project area covers sites the government has allocated for settlement and rehabilitation over the last 15 to 20 years in Upper, Middle, and Lower Egypt. Activities will target farmers and rural workers engaged in casual labour – particularly young people – who are poor, vulnerable and facing food and nutrition insecurity.
