The project, implemented in 4 districts of the Provinces of Zambezia and Nampula, aims at offering a response to the limited availability and diversification of agricultural products and food caused by: i) low productivity farming systems, ii) unfavourable environment in terms of regulatory and institutional framework and inadequate technical assistance services for the planning of resilient and sustainable agricultural models iii) inadequate food and sanitation habits to meet nutritional needs. The intervention strategy aims to help achieve food security, improve nutrition, and increase the income of the population of Mozambique and is based on the adoption of an agricultural model of production and consumption that is sustainable, resilient, and focused on the nutritional needs of the population. The main activities are: 1) Increase the food security of small-scale producer households (particularly women and youth) in 16 communities, by increasing and diversifying primary production and strengthening key food value-chains through sustainable agricultural production techniques (AgroForestry Systems and agroecology); 2) Strengthen the regulatory framework for an adequate trade-off between agriculture and environment, through a deep advocacy work with institutions, in order to promote public sector policies of sustainable agriculture and sustainable food systems in line with the model. The project will indeed support the creation of a "Center for Innovation, Dissemination and training in Agro-Forestry Systems - CISAF", which will test and promote techniques based on agro-forestry systems, support innovation and encourage opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration in the academic area, among policy makers and with the private sector; 3) Improve the nutritional status of households in the intervention areas by ensuring access to nutritious and safe food and healthy, local agricultural products. Support will also be offered to local institutions for the prevention, identification, screening and treatment of child malnutrition, as well as sensitizing communities and schools on nutritional aspects and good hygiene and health practices. read more close
