TCP/DRK/3404 - Improved Rice Production and Sustainability through System of Rice Intensification

TCP/DRK/3404 - Improved Rice Production and Sustainability through System of Rice Intensification

 

 

TCP/DRK/3403 - The pasture seed multiplication and sustainable pasture development in Sepo uplands

TCP/DRK/3403 - The pasture seed multiplication and sustainable pasture development in Sepo uplands


The pasture seed multiplication and sustainable pasture development TCP (TCP/DRK/3403) project in the Sepo uplands received 436,000 usd funding. The Government promotes grass based sustainable livestock development, and plans to develop 50,000 hectares of abandoned native pastures in the Sepo Uplands for goats, sheep and cattle production.

The project builds technical capacity for pasture seed production and supports a pilot 100 dairy goat herd and a 24 dairy cow herd. This, once up-scaled, is expected to improve food and nutritional security, reduce poverty, reduce child mortality and improve maternal health.

TCP/DRK/3503 - Emergency assistance to control HPAI capacity

TCP/DRK/3503 - Emergency assistance to control HPAI capacity


Emergency assistance to control HPAI capacity (TCP/DRK/3503). Avian influenza can decimate poultry in their highest numbers. The disease can result in restrictions on domestic and international trade of poultry products and impact farmer's livelihoods and social economics.

Through this project, government field staffs are trained in disease control especially in disease surveillance and preparedness for future outbreaks. The result is a continued constant supply of poultry, food and nutrition security and improved livelihoods of populations. The livestock sector contribution to the agricultural economy will also be increased through enhanced veterinary capacity.

TCP/DRK/3505 - Emergency response to foot and mouth disease outbreak

TCP/DRK/3505 - Emergency response to foot and mouth disease outbreak


The emergency response to foot and mouth disease outbreak is aimed at enhancing government’s capacity to respond to and manage the outbreaks including by developing and implementing an emergency preparedness and response plan.

With 435,000 USD TCP funding, government field staff are trained in basic handling of animals and collecting samples, and in core central veterinary services. Farmers are trained on farm bio-security to ensure that affected animals are contained in the shortest time possible with a view to minimising the negative impacts of animal disease outbreaks.

TCP/DRK/3502 - Seed Multiplication and Post-Harvest Management for Food and Nutrition Security

TCP/DRK/3502 - Seed Multiplication and Post-Harvest Management for Food and Nutrition Security


Farmer Participatory Seed Multiplication and Post-Harvest Management for Food and Nutrition Security (TCP/DRK/3502). After the success of the Improved Seed Production for Sustainable Agriculture and Reduction of Post-Harvest Losses for Food Security projects, there was still a need for improved seed quality, controlled cultivation, post-harvest management mainly through capacity building and proper threshing and drying.

The project will benefit 4,085 cooperative farmers. Extension agents from the Ministry of Agriculture will receive applied training in improved seed production and good agricultural practices to minimize post-harvest losses. Academics and researchers will also be trained and will benefit from hands-on exposure and practical approaches introduced by the project to help increase human resource capacity.

The ultimate beneficiaries are more than 716,000 populations of six counties under the project who will benefit from cheaper and more available agriculture produce and products for improved nutrition.

OSRO/DRK/501/CHA - Emergency support to improve food security and nutrition of vulnerable farming families

OSRO/DRK/501/CHA - Emergency support to improve food security and nutrition of vulnerable farming families


The Emergency support to improve food security and nutrition of vulnerable farming families (OSRO/DRK/501/CHA) is a CERF funded project which aims at safeguarding the lives of the food insecure farming families by increasing the production of vegetables and soybean.

The aim is to increase Vegetable yield/ha by 35 percent and soybean by 25 percent compared to 2013.

TCP/DRK/3504 - Support for Integrated Crop-livestock Farming System

TCP/DRK/3504 - Support for Integrated Crop-livestock Farming System


Support for Integrated Crop-livestock Farming System (TCP/DRK/3504 ) In an integrated system, livestock and crops will be produced within a coordinated framework. The waste products of one component will serve as a resource for the other. For example, manure will be used to enhance crop production; crop residues and by-products will feed the animals, supplementing often inadequate feed supplies, thus contributing to improved animal nutrition and productivity.

The result of this cyclical combination is the mixed farming system, which exists in many forms and represents the largest category of livestock systems in the DPRK. The project will directly contribute to improved food and nutrition security of some 5,110 families and indirectly to some 642,430 people through integrated crop-livestock farming systems.
