Project Title: Feed the Future Resilient Agricultural Markets Activity (RAMA) – Nacala Corridor
In Mozambique’s Nacala Corridor, smallholder farmers, particularly women, play a critical role in any efforts to increase production. The USAID Mozambique Feed the Future Resilient Agricultural Markets Activity (RAMA) – Nacala Corridor will facilitate the adoption of good agricultural practices and technology to increase resilience and achieve sustainable increases in agricultural productivity to protect food security. By providing higher quality, demand-driven information and services to businesses, agricultural producers and processors, this project aims to reduce poverty and hunger. It also empowers women — 87 percent of Mozambique’s agricultural labor force — to be decision-makers and drivers of production, landscape management and household nutrition. Through partnerships within the private sector and the government of Mozambique, the project can maximize resources to provide technical assistance and improved technologies through existing networks and stakeholders.
