The initiative takes place in the rural districts of Magude, Moamba and Manhiça, in Maputo Province (Mozambique), in a context that in recent years has been affected by multiple, diversified crises (climatic, economic, agricultural, health-related) that have limited the potential for agricultural development and negatively affected the well-being and food security of rural households, mainly engaged in agricultural activities, and the ability of young men and women to find employment or start income-generating activities. The C2M project aims to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of rural households in terms of food security and socio-economic stability resulting from resilient and sustainable agricultural activities through the strengthening of the agricultural sector in a perspective of adaptation to climate change. It specifically aims to increase opportunities for accessing local markets for small producers members of agricultural associations, with particular attention to young women and men, through the increase of agricultural productivity, the decrease of production and post-harvest losses and the increase of technical skills. To this end, building on the proponent's consolidated experience in the context of intervention with post-drought emergency and rural resilience projects, C2M adopts a multidimensional and integrated approach, which is reflected in the three project outputs: improving the productive capacity of 26 smallholder associations through increased availability of infrastructure and services for agriculture at the district level, with a focus on irrigated agriculture; reducing production and post-harvest losses through installation of infrastructure and training on conservation, processing and marketing; and boosting the self-enterprise capacity of 90 young people including through increased technical skills with vocational courses and internships. C2M is implemented by a network of partners that includes a registered NGO with two decades of experience in the target districts (Helpcode), a cooperative specialised in the development, management and training on software for data analysis and monitoring in vulnerable contexts (Gnucoop), a corporation that develops and patents materials and products from renewable sources for agriculture (Novamont), an institution of the Mozambican Government (Provincial Directorate of Agriculture and Fisheries, DPAP) and a Mozambican partner (NGO) that is a recognised actor in training, entrepreneurship (ANJE). The DPAP is also directly involved in the project as a partner, supervising the process of digitalization of the agricultural data collection form implemented, validated and formally adopted for the whole Maputo Province under the project AID10862, and the training of technicians in charge of field data collection. The institutional counterparts - Governments of the intervention districts, with the District Services for Economic Activities (SDAE), District Services for Planning and Infrastructure (SDPI), District Services for Education, Youth and Technology (SDEJT) are fully involved in the definition, implementation, visibility and monitoring of the initiative, through Memorandum of Collaboration. This activity underpins the project logic that the availability of high quality and timely agricultural data is essential for institutions at all levels, and for cooperation partners, in order to make sound decisions to guide agricultural and rural development strategies and activities, and contribute to the reduction of poverty and food insecurity. read more close
