Project Information

The overall objective of the programme was to improve livelihoods, income and agricultural competitiveness of poor rural households in the context of a regionally integrated GMS. It specifically sought to:

  • Introduce new and improved production, handling and processing technologies for commodities of interest to poor rural households, particularly women;
  • Make commodity chains more rewarding for poor producers by promoting balanced partnerships between buyers and producers; and
  • Facilitate expanded trade for rural poor households within neighboring countries of the GMS by exploring new ways to assess market demand and address trade constraints.

Complementary Information

The project targeted women who will benefit from the project activities.
