About the Project

GAFSP invests $8.2 million to increase agricultural productivity and production of smallholder farmers, improve their market access and income, and strengthen the capacity of government institutions, farmers, and producer organizations. SADFONS aims to improve food and nutrition security and reduce poverty among the targeted rural population in the counties of Grand Gedeh, Grand Kru, River Gee, Maryland, Bomi, Bong, Montserrado, Sinoe, Grand Bassa, River Cess, and Grand Cape Mount. Focusing on food crops, such as rice, cassava, and vegetables, the project supports smallholder farmers with value addition, market access, and improved income through increased agricultural productivity and production and strengthens the capacities of government institutions, farmers, and producer organizations. The project objectives fully align with and support the Liberia Agricultural Sector Investment Program II for 2018–2022 (LASIP II) development priorities.
