Farm Reconstruction Project - Re-stocking Activities
About the Project
In the aftermath of war, smallholder farmers and their families faced a devastating situation. Many of their assets were destroyed and they were struggling to survive. This was the first project under the Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Programme for Agriculture and Rural Areas, formulated by the government and the international donor community as part of an effort to repair and restock farms and restore infrastructure. The objective of the project was to give a rapid boost to agricultural production, improve food security and provide employment opportunities for those returning to rural areas. Project activities included restocking livestock and farm machinery and strengthening animal health services. Priority was given to refugees returning home and to farming households that had suffered substantial damage to their farms.
