The initiative contributes to the achievement of family farmers’ socio-economic inclusion in the Inhambane Province, an area of Mozambique, which is vulnerable to the impact of climate change and where 90% of residents practice subsistence agriculture. The main objective is to increase the productivity and to improve the sustainability of the family farm production systems in the Morrumbene, Homoine, Inharrime, Funhalouro and Panda Districts, the most adversely affected areas by problems linked with food insecurity and poor infrastructure connections. The initiative is directed to 31.221 beneficiaries (small-scale agricultural producers). Particular attention will be dedicated to women, who are excluded from the household economic decisions despite their fundamental role in rural development. The project will intervene on the access to added value chains in agriculture, with a view to strengthening all the phases of the production cycle, thanks to the synergic actions of the local and international Partners, and specifically the cashew value chain, one of the main drivers of development in the Country. The intervention will strengthen the productivity of already existing cashew orchards in the target communities, sustainably increasing the agricultural productions with a high market value. The improvement of the farming practices for orchard management will be promoted, through intercropping cashew with peanut, corn and beans, to the benefit of the households’ food security. Campaigns of anti-fungal spraying against oidium will be implemented, and a centre for the maintenance of the equipment used for the spraying practice will be activated. A microcredit service, with a portfolio dedicated to the cashew value chain, will be provided to support investments in the creation of cashew orchards, the nut processing and commercialisation. The initiative aims at strengthening the (formal and informal) organisations of producers which provide opportunity for skills development, access to markets and mutual support. Capacity-building activities on cooperative promotion and women’s participation in decision-making processes will also be organised. Opportunities of collaboration between the agro-industries in the target Districts and the networks at provincial and national level will be promoted. read more close
