The project is implemented in 3 districts in SNNPRS (Alaba, East Badewacho, West Badewacho) and 3 in Oromiya (Shashamene, Shala, Siraro)

The project aims at contributing to the improvement of socio-economic conditions of rural communities in 6 districts of Oromiya and SNNPRS through fostering local agricultural production. Project activities seek to transform the current subsistence agriculture into a modern system with higher productivity and production, better incomes to farmers, stronger linkages with the market, adequate extension services and a participatory planning process that can improve the role of producers and public authorities in the agricultural sector. This approach is eventually aimed at improving the contribution of agriculture to the whole country’s economy. read more close
