He explained that the intervention, which is free, targets the very poor farmers in agricultural inputs and services, agricultural infrastructure, processing and mitigating of food loss and waste, among other issues that will enhance and reduce the aftermath of the pandemic among smallholder farmers.

He further stated that the 24-month project would continue to ensure an increase in food security and safe functioning of food supply chains for poor households.
