Description and results


The project aims to improve food security in two counties of Northern Bahr El Ghazal State through improved, increased and diversified food production (agriculture and fishing). Activities include: 1) providing basic agricultural inputs (seeds and tools); 2) supporting vegetable production and fisherfolk through agricultural training groups; 3) training in nutrition; and 4) training in animal traction cultivation.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: 1) increased and diversified food production and consumption among participating households; and 2) increased adoption of new and improved environmentally sustainable farming and fishing practices by participating farmers.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of the end of the project (August 2017) include: (1) the number of households consuming at least two meals per day has increased from 50% to 83%; (2) a total of 321,812 kg of seeds were distributed using direct distribution and input trade fairs to 10,000 project participants (of which 7,032 were women) which enabled increased planting; (3) 6,207 people (4,028 women) were sensitized on gender equality issues; (4) 1,110 farmers were trained on animal traction; and (5) 100 farmer field schools were established with 3,000 participants (including 1,606 women), which increased farmers’ skills and knowledge of techniques for seed selection, pest control and other agricultural activities. Through these activities, the project was able to help farmers increase and diversify their food production, and improve their farming practices.
