Fintrac is currently implementing 11 projects to improve incomes and food security in nine countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America:
Helping Address Rural Vulnerabilities and Ecosystem STability (Cambodia HARVEST)
Cambodia HARVEST is a five-year integrated food security and climate change program that reduces poverty and malnutrition by diversifying and increasing food production and income for nearly 70,000 rural Cambodian households. The project develops sound agricultural solutions to poor productivity, postharvest losses, malnutrition, lack of market access, environmental degradation, and the effects of climate change on vulnerable rural populations.
Capacity to Improve Agriculture and Food Security (CIAFS)
CIAFS supports Ethiopia's efforts to transform its agricultural sector and improve food security for the Ethiopian people by providing targeted training and raising awareness of best practices in agricultural development. The project strives to empower leaders to catalyze change, drive growth, and reduce poverty.
ACCESO is a four-year project lifting more than 30,000 households in western Honduras out of poverty and malnutrition conditions through economic development, increased incomes, and improved health and nutrition practices. The project is part of the US government's Feed the Future initiative and is USAID's main investment in Honduras.
Kenya Horticulture Competiveness Project (KHCP)
KHCP is working to increase the incomes of 200,000 smallholder farmers through enhanced productivity, crop diversification, and improved market access, while contributing to a highly competitive, inclusive horticulture industry.
Kenya Agricultural Value Chain Enterprises (KAVES)
KAVES is a five-year food security project that will increase the productivity and incomes of 400,000 smallholder farmers and other actors along the agricultural value chain. Increased competitiveness of selected value chains will increase incomes, mitigate food insecurity, and improve nutrition for rural farmers.
Nepal Economic, Agriculture, and Trade Activity (NEAT)
As a subcontractor on the NEAT project, Fintrac is spearheading activities focused on food security, value chain development, and export competitiveness, which support the project's overall goals of promoting economic growth and reducing poverty in Nepal.
Tanzania Agriculture Productivity Program (TAPP)
TAPP is increasing rural incomes, improving nutrition, and expanding markets through agricultural innovation and commercialization. The program will reach more than 20,000 smallholders over five years, linking them with commercial buyers and providing technical assistance to improve productivity. As part of the Feed the Future initiative, TAPP also integrates nutrition and health into its agricultural activities.
Zimbabwe Agricultural Income and Employment Development (Zim-AIED)
Zim-AIED is increasing incomes, employment, and food security for 180,000 rural Zimbabweans through the commercialization of small-scale farming. The project achieves this goal through an integrated approach that focuses on connecting farmers to reliable markets; opening up access to credit; raising efficiencies in production systems; and providing technical assistance to improve farming and business practices.
Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation
Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation advances technology-centered partnerships for investment and distribution across the developing world. As part of the US government's Feed the Future initiative, its goal is to put innovative agriculture technologies into the hands of smallholder farmers to quickly and sustainably improve productivity and incomes.
Enabling Agricultural Trade (EAT)
EAT improves market conditions for agricultural growth through a suite of targeted and customizable analytical tools and implementation support to identify, diagnose, and reform the agribusiness enabling environment. EAT provides intellectual leadership in the development community on the legal, regulatory, and institutional issues most impacting individuals and businesses in the agriculture sector.
Bellmon Estimation Studies for Title II (BEST)
BEST deploys teams of agricultural economists, market analysts, and food security programming experts to conduct in-depth field assessments that inform food security program planning and analysis. Additionally, BEST produces important methodology related resources and seminars for US government agencies.
All of our projects are made possible by the support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
