The grant will promote water harvesting and small-scale irrigation schemes to facilitate an all year round vegetable production and consumption. It will also develop capacity and provide support to enable the resource poor farmers improve productivity and the quality of their produce. It is further to reduce post-harvest losses through the institution of efficient post-harvest handling mechanisms and the facilitation of access to high value markets to ensure appreciable income levels for the farmers. The project results will be achieved through four project components: 1) Farmer Managed Irrigation Systems Development; 2) Farmer Capacity Development and Support to Productivity Improvement; 3) Improving Post-Harvest Handling and Access to Markets; and 4) Project Management, Monitoring and Evaluation, and Knowledge Dissemination.
