$33.9 million for the Caribbean Coast Food Security Project to focus on small producers, ethnic minorities, and value chains with growth potential in the impoverished Caribbean coast region of Nicaragua.

 

GAFSP supports the Sector-wide Rural Development Program (PRORURAL I), which focuses on poor smallholders as active participants in their own sustainable human development to achieve food security and foster agricultural exports.  The project aims to promote increased and environmentally sustainable agricultural productivity in the Nicaraguan Caribbean Coast to ensure both food and nutrition security and sovereignty. GAFSP supports and facilitates (i) investments in technology adoption; (ii) technical assistance and training towards the adoption of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP); and (iii) formation of producer associations and reinforced Public Private Partnerships.

 

 

The GAFSP Private Sector Window is also funding Fondo de Desarrollo Local (FDL) to support its expansion of its lending in the rural agribusiness sector and to micro-entrepreneurs and the Roya Renovation project to provide financing for renovation of coffee plantations affected by coffee rust in Nicaragua.
