•The World Bank has invested $20 million in developing 1.2million hectares of agribusiness linked smallholder schemes coordinated by the BAGC
•The BAGC has since 2017 been in partnership with the WFP Country office in the organisation and capacity building of farmers associations in Manica Province. This programme was implemented within the framework of the PURCHASE FOR PROGRESS (P4P) initiative in which WFP works with partners in the public and private sector to extend its purchase programmes of staple food crops programme to directly benefit smallholder farmers.
•The BAGC with funding from WFP implemented the Zero Post-Harvest Loss Project, which aimed (first) to reduce postharvest losses among farming families participating in WFP supply chains, (second) reduce food storage losses at the farmers level, and (third) foster market integration in the region by linking together farmers, agro-processors, and schools, with the objective to strengthen the supply chains of local staple foods. The objective of this work was to provide trainings to 2,000 smallholder farmers that are part of this project in Tete province. Angonia, Macanga, Tsangano, Changara, Marara and Cahora Bassa
