In 2016, the ACDI consulted on the Mozambique Pro Poor Value Chains IFAD funded Project (PROSUL). The project ran a climate change risk analysis to identify suitable local adaptations related to horticulture, cassava and red meat value chains. It also identifed key institutional responses that need to be undertaken to support actions on the ground that will make the required adaptations viable. The technical approach was consultative, drawing on local expertise and endogenous agricultural knowledge and experience as much as possible.
The overall goal of PROSUL was to enable improved and climate-resilient livelihoods of smallholder farmers in selected districts of the Maputo and Limpopo corridors. The project’s development objective was to achieve sustainable increased returns to these farmers from:
increased production volumes and quality in the targeted value chains
