Description

In the Ethiopian context, the links between agriculture, agroindustry development, gender and nutrition have important implications on poverty reduction, biodiversity conservation and environmental sustainability; therefore, rural women's role is critical and necessary in all development agendas. This project is aimed at building on the achievements of the initial pilot phase implemented by UNIDO, to scale-up moringa production & productivity (M. stenopetala and M. oleifera), strengthen the value chain through integrated utilization of natural resources, and improve value addition through processing and marketing in a sustainable way. To realize its objectives, the project will focus on improving food and nutritional security and livelihood of rural households, targeting especially rural women, through the development of an inclusive and sustainable moringa Value Chain. In particular, the project will: i) Enhance sustainable production and productivity of moringa through integrated utilization of natural resources; ii) Improve value addition of moringa through processing and marketing of moringa products; iii) Strengthen a nutrition-sensitive moringa value chain through inclusive agri-food systems, promotion of nutritious products and a conducive enabling environment. read more close
