Establish national and state level multistakeholder gender-sensitive platforms advocating sustainable agriculture and SLWM practices for improved food security. Public-Private partnerships established for major food crops (cassava, rice and sorghum) and value chains for food production, processing and distribution.
Scaling-up sustainable agricultural practices and market opportunities for smallholder farmers in the target agro-ecological zones to increase food security under increasing climate risks
350,000 ha under improved land use and agro-ecosystem management practices. Increased value addition and access to markets realized by beneficiary smallholder farmers. 35,000 ha under intensive and diversified production for enhanced income and improved nutrition. 14,000 women and 28,000 youth incentivized to participate/engage in increased groundnut and rice production and processing for improved income and nutrition.
Knowledge, Monitoring and Assessment
Harmonized M&E framework in place for food security information, multi-scale assessment of sustainability and resilience in production agro-ecological zones and landscapes and monitoring of global environmental benefits.
