Savannah Investment Program (SIP)

About the Project

The project aims to increase climate-smart local food production, and enhance food and nutrition security for women, youth and vulnerable groups. It will do so by improving access to climate smart agricultural inputs such as supplying climate smart and drought tolerant seeds for smallholder farmers. Another key area of support will be the expansion of mechanization. The project area has a unimodal rainfall pattern and farmers are only able to grow one season per year. Solar-operated micro-irrigation will enhance all year-round production capacity for women, youth and vulnerable groups. The project will promote poultry production, with a goal of improving incomes of 1,000 women-headed households and their household nutrition, especially for children.

GAFSP funding will further expand the promotion of nutritious food into the school feeding program and in vulnerable households, by introducing highly nutritious vegetables and legumes. To ensure the policy and regulatory frameworks support smallholder farmers in the long-term, key policy measures to enhance private sector participation and build an effective and resilient integrated agriculture value chains will be pursued as well.
