Project Overview

The project lays the foundation to strengthen resilience in the face of climate, economic, conflict, and other social challenges currently being experienced in the country.  It prioritizes investments that help to increase agricultural resilience through capacity building of farmers and institutions and supporting the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security (MAFS) in integrating climate change into national policies and planning processes. 

Key Project Components

RALP supports capacity building of farmers in good agronomic practices through formation and strengthening of farmer groups and improving farmers knowledge and skills. The project supports investment by increasing access to food for households facing acute food insecurity, increasing the availability of quality seeds and enhancing access to technology and mechanization. The project provides technical assistance and capacity building to the MAFS.

MAFS has established a Single Project Coordination Unit to provide technical support to the implementation of the project.
