The GAFSP Steering Committee met in Washington on June 7-8, 2011, and awarded a total of US$160 million in direct project funding to four countries: Cambodia (US$39.1 million), Liberia (US$46.5 million), Nepal (US$46.5 million), and Tajikistan (US$27.9 million).
Cambodia (Supervising Entity – Asian Development Bank):
GAFSP funds will support increased productivity and diversity of agriculture in selected highly food insecure and economically-depressed areas.
Liberia (Supervising Entity – African Development Bank):
GAFSP funds will enhance the income of smallholder famers, particularly women and youth, through irrigable land expansion, land husbandry improvement, and improvement of market access. It will also build capacity for adaptive agricultural research and improve agricultural advisory services.
Nepal (Supervising Entities – World Bank and FAO):
GAFSP funds will enhance household food security in the poorest and most food insecure regions through increased agricultural productivity, household incomes and awareness about health and nutrition in the mid-western and far-western development regions.
Tajikistan (Supervising Entity – World Bank):
GAFSP funds will increase food security through increased crop production resulting from improved sustainable irrigation and drainage infrastructure and improved water resource management policies.
The next call for proposals is expected in fall 2011 pending availability of funding. Details of this call will be posted on this website as soon as timing is defined by the Steering Committee.
