Project Description
The Project Development Objective (PDO) is to increase nutritionally-adequate food production in two selected provinces, leading to increased household food consumption and dietary diversity. The PDO will be achieved by: (a) building capacity of small and marginal farmers (especially women); (b) increasing the production of high-nutrient-content food, including fruits and vegetables for consumption (and where feasible commercialization); and (c) sensitizing and communicating (and thereby encouraging demand) on foods such as fruits and vegetables with a high nutrition value.
