Project Description
IFC will provide technical assistance and strategic advisory to the client(s) to achieve the following: 1) Develop a farmer support programme for clients to build capacity of smallholder mango farmers to adopt climate smart, water-efficient mango cultivation practices for yield improvements, including Ultra High Density Mango Plantations, wherever appropriate. The Project is expected to demonstrate a 2x increase in farm yields and incomes through the above practices (as compared with mango orchards with traditional agronomy practices) for a representative sample of farmers in the supply-chain of Client(s). 2) Develop a roadmap / strategy for client(s) to sustainably scale-up the outreach of the programme to cover more than 10,000 smallholder farmers with support for modern and sustainable mango cultivation practuces, including Ultra High Density Mango Plantations with particular emphasis on water-efficient mango cultivation practices and technologies. 3) Support client(s) in developing a comprehensive impact assessment framework to be able to track the impact of Ultra High Density Mango Plantations, including the following: (a) Water footprint assessment, (b) Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) and (c) Return on Investment (ROI) analysis. This will be done at the farmer and company-level for demonstrating a business case for accelerated adoption of UHDP and other sustainable, water-efficient mango cultivation practices.
