Systems Approach to Improving and Sustaining Food Security in West Africa (en)

The project aims to improve the food security status of people living in poor rural communities in Ghana, Mali, Sierra Leone and Senegal. The project will work to increase the adoption of agricultural practices that promote sustainable livelihoods; improve the utilization of health food especially by women and children; and, increase the effectiveness and use of agricultural extension services. Specific activities include: training farmers on best animal husbandry practices, seed production, pest management and early disease detection; as well as the training of government rural extension service staff in planning, implementing, and monitoring projects together with the participation of local communities and farmers. The project is expected to reach around 45,000 subsistence farmers and their families and around 1,400 members of farmer associations and purchasing groups, as well as local agriculture authorities. At the country level, World Vision Canada is working in partnership with local farm-based civil society organizations to implement this project.
