Women, resettled peoples to be given greater capacity in agriculture

Work is being done to improve agriculture and livestock productivity over the next 6 years by building the capacity of community organizations and local government entities. The main focus will be on assisting resettled people and households headed by women; it will also work to provide smaller scale farmers with better access to markets. In order to do this, women employed in the dairy sector will be given technical assistance in such areas as hygiene and young animal care, and will receive training in greenhouse development, vegetable processing, horticulture, forage production, and business. More than 169,500 rural households in Kabul, Parwan, and Logar provinces will benefit.

The project is being supported by the International Fund for Agricultural Development and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.
