      Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) for sustainable improvement of quality and quantity of horticultural production of small-scale farmers in Fayoum
      2017
      2019
      747,050
      The main objective of the proposed action is to improve the living condition of small-scale horticulture farmers, both male and female, in the five selected target villages in Fayoum Governorate and increase the quality, quantity and the competitiveness of their production through the adoption of GAPs with emphasis on reducing the use of pesticides while maintaining high crop productivity. The specific objective is to increase production and improve the quality of specific horticultural crops grown by small-scale farmers in the five target villages through the adoption of horticultural GAPs. This will be achieved through the establishment of SFAs in each target village to form the core target groups for scaling up GAP through comprehensive training and demonstration activities covering improved more efficient water management, sustainable soil management, integrated protected production practices and diversification into higher value, higher yielding horticultural crops which can be sold to local and export marketing companies through group farming contracts. The materials produced for the training and demonstration activities will be used in preparation of comprehensive yet simplified and easy to follow GAP guidelines which will be developed by the project.

      Support to strengthen national capacities of Producer Organizations in the NENA Region
      2017
      2018
      400,000
      Strengthened producer organizations (POs) can help SSFF overcome the barriers they face and develop innovative organizational arrangements that broaden their capabilities. Given the wide range of services that inclusive and efficient POs can provide to their members, these organizations are essential for a thriving agricultural sector and for boosting rural economies. They enable farmers to benefit from an array of services including access and management of natural resources, markets, credits, inputs and information as well as influencing policy-making processes. POs are a vehicle to encourage rural populations to remain in their territories instead of migrating to urban centers or to other countries. For this, governments have a critical role to play in creating conducive conditions by enabling collective action of producers to form and thrive. These conditions include developing transparent and sound regulatory frameworks, a conducive investment climate, as well as facilitating the creation of frameworks and policy dialogue spaces between governments and various stakeholders.
