Recipient:
Donor:
Contribution:
USD 4 063 609
Implementation:
01/01/2007-31/03/2008
Project code:
OSRO/SUD/708/CHF
Objective:

To contribute to restoring food security and livelihoods through the provision of agricultural inputs for food production, carrying out income-generating activities and training to increase resilience and self-reliance of drought- and conflict-affected people in the Greater Darfur region.

Key partners:

Food Security and Livelihoods (FSL) Sector partners, State and Federal Ministries of Agriculture.

Beneficiaries reached:

102 093 households.

Activities implemented:
  • 61 250 households received 808 tonnes of crop seeds (sorghum, millet and groundnut).
  • 17 338 households provided with almost 3.5 tonnes of vegetable seeds.
  • Donkey ploughs, hand tools, treadle pumps, grinding mills and oil extractors distributed to participating farmers.
  • Regular meetings of the FSL Sector organized to harmonize planning and programming, avoid duplication and improve monitoring and evaluation.
  • 905 beneficiaries trained in agricultural extension, constructing shallow wells, making fuel-efficient stoves, vegetable gardening, water harvesting raising seedlings.
  • Support provided for the construction/rehabilitation of 25 shallow wells.
Impact:
  • Farmers produced crops worth over USD 25 million and vegetables worth over USD 3 million, enabling them to meet their own needs and generate some income from the sale of surplus.
  • Treadle pumps and donkey ploughs enabled beneficiaries to increase the area under cultivation and, therefore, their production levels.
  • Participating farmers were able to take advantage of the increased price of grains in the market.
  • The constructed/rehabilitated shallow wells will protect targeted areas from seasonal flooding.
