$22.9 million to support the rehabilitation of irrigation schemes and an input voucher scheme for rice input packages in the project zones.
GAFSP funding will contribute to sector growth with a particular focus on enhancing rice production in the TARIPA-SAGCOT area in Tanzania Mainland, and in Mtwango, Kibokwa, and Ole in Zanzibar Islands. The ultimate aim is to improve food and nutrition security of smallholder farmers in the identified project areas. Indirect benefits will include increased income and better livelihoods in the local project area, price stability for rice in the domestic market, contributing towards curbing rising food prices. Specifically, GAFSP will finance interventions that promote a seed multiplication distribution system, accelerate adoption of new technologies, rehabilitate irrigation schemes, and enhance capacity for monitoring and evaluation.
