Hinterland Environmentally Sustainable Agricultural Development Project

The project is to benefit 6,000 families from 80 communities in regions 1 and 9 of the country, paying special attention to segments of the population most affected by poverty. About 15 per cent of the households are headed by women and at least 75 per cent of project beneficiaries are  indigenous people.

The project supports the resilience of rural families and indigenous people by promoting the links between economic diversification, productive transformation, environmental protection and family nutrition. The project identifies products that enable small farmers' inclusion in markets. This, in turn, increases local demand for services and labour and strengthens the entire rural economy.

The project improves small farmers' access to public services, knowledge and technologies through training and technical assistance in the areas of planning and natural resources (water, soil, renewable energy, agro-diversity) management. It also supports local and regional councils to enable them to plan and prioritize investments in local value chains and strengthens resilience, enabling communities to identify economic opportunities as well as risks resulting from climate change.

Another main target of the project is enhancing food security and nutrition through the promotion of crops, fish and forest products that improve household diets sustainably. This involves nutrition education and behaviour change activities, including the elaboration of dietary guidelines.
