Pro-poor Value Chain Development Project (PROSUL): Adaptation Responses for Horticulture, Cassava and Red Meat Value Chains in Mozambique.

Thematic Study on Climate Change and Adaptation Responses for Horticulture, Cassava and Red Meat Value Chain for the Pro-poor Value Chain Development Project (PROSUL) in the Maputo and Limpopo Corridors 

The ACDI is consulting on the Mozambique Pro Poor Value Chains IFAD funded Project (PROSUL). The project will be undertaking a climate change risk analysis on agricultural value chains from March – August 2016. The thematic study will identify suitable local adaptations related to horticulture, cassava and red meat value chains. It will also identify key institutional responses that need to be undertaken to support actions on the ground that will make the required adaptations viable. The technical approach is consultative, drawing on local expertise and endogenous agricultural knowledge and experience as much as possible.

Objective

The overall goal of PROSUL is to enable improved and climate-resilient livelihoods of smallholder farmers in selected districts of the Maputo and Limpopo corridors. The project’s development objective is to achieve sustainable increased returns to these farmers from:

  • increased production volumes and quality in the targeted value chains
  • improved market linkages
  • efficient farmer organisation
  • higher farmers’ share over the final added value
