Africa Food Trade and Resilience programme

UK aid from the British people

Programme Data Last Updated: 18/11/2022

IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-1-300489

Description

The programme will stimulate an increase in regional food trade in sub Saharan Africa (SSA), contributing to satisfying a growing food demand and to addressing food shortages through regional food production, processing and trade, and generating more rural jobs, climate resilience and income for farmers. The programme will: (i) work with companies that source, process, and trade food in the region, to maximise investment, coordination and benefits to smallholder farmers and (ii) contribute to improve the transparency and predictability of government policies to unlock regional food trade. By 2023, we expect the programme will increase income for 1.8 million farming families. DFID funding will de-risk and stimulate over £100 million in private sector investment aimed at enhancing smallholder farmers’ productivity and resilience.
