Community-Based Agricultural Support Project
The project is designed to stimulate inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction in poor rural communities through improving access to productive infrastructure and services that lead to sustainable agricultural production and equitable returns. It aims to tackle the lack of access to modern farming technologies of the poorest smallholders in remote villages and at supporting private-sector mechanized service providers and maintenance services.
Project activities are organised into two components:
- Strengthening rural institutions, by developing business-oriented small-plots farmers groups and building the capacities of implementation service providers;
- Improving agricultural productivity and business linkages, through stimulating the use of modern agricultural technologies and infrastructures.
The project areas includes some 225 villages in selected areas of Soghd and Khatlon Regions and the Districts of Republican Subordination Region, thus reaching up to 48,160 households. Primary target groups are rural people living in extreme poverty, who are either landless or producing a bare subsistence minimum on household plots; subsistence and semi-subsistence farmers; rural underemployed.
