Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.
The proposed Additional Financing will broadly maintain a similar structure to the parent National Horticulture and Livestock Project, which has the following three components: (a) Component A: Horticultural Production, (b) Component B: Animal Production and Health, and (c) Component C: Implementation Management and Technical Assistance Support. The total estimated project cost of the AF is US$ 90 million, which would be financed from the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund. Some of the key changes proposed as the results of this AF are summarized as follows: (i) Expansion of project activities from 22 to up to all 34 Provinces, security permitting; (ii) Increased emphasis on the use of Community Development Councils (CDCs) as the main entry point for introducing technology transfer programs;(iii) Increased emphasis on marketing, post-harvest handling and processing systems, and market development for farm outputs; and (iv) introduction of Farmers Learning and Resource Centers as a means of enhancing the technology transfer capabilities of existing Farmer Field Schools (FFS) and investment support and Packages. Lastly, the results framework has been refined and updated to reflect additional financing and introduce the new indicators needed.
