The Smallholder Agricultural Productivity Enhancement and Commercialization (SAPEC) Project seeks to reduce rural poverty and household food insecurity by increasing income for smallholder farmers and rural entrepreneurs particularly women, youths and the physically-challenged. SAPEC will be implemented in 12 of the 15 counties of Liberia over a five-year period. The project will scale-up the on-going African Development Bank (AfDB)/International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)-supported Agricultural Sector Rehabilitation Project (ASRP) in 8 of the 12 counties where the ASRP is being implemented. The three counties uncovered by SAPEC are programmed for similar interventions by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), World Bank (WB) and other donors. The project consists of four components, namely: (i) Sustainable Crop Production Intensification; (ii) Value Addition and Marketing; (iii) Capacity Building and Institutional Strengthening; and (iv) Project Management. The total project cost is UA34.08 million.
The goal of the proposed SAPEC project is to reduce rural poverty and household food insecurity. Its objective is to increase, on a sustainable basis, the income of smallholder farmers and rural entrepreneurs, particularly women, youths and the physically-challenged.
The estimated total project beneficiaries of 180,000 smallholder farming families, of which 25,000 will be directly targeted, constitute 51% of the total rice and cassava producing households in Liberia who provide livelihood for over 1 million people. About 20% of these households are headed by women, and 60% of its members are women who form the majority of Liberia’s rice and cassava cultivators.
