SAFEVEG West Africa

Brief me

SAFEVEG aims to pilot and scale innovative approaches to improve the functioning of vegetable value chains through strengthening the relationships among value chain actors, and increase the production and consumption of safe vegetables, leading to better nutrition and more jobs, especially for women and youth in West Africa.

More specifically SAFEVEG will contribute to these outcomes:

  • Increased vegetable consumption in urban and peri-urban areas
  • Increased use of sustainable agricultural and post-harvest practices that are climate-smart
  • Strengthened vegetable businesses
  • Evidence-basis strengthened for effective policies and interventions increasing vegetable production and consumption
  • Capacity built of national agricultural research systems in vegetable research and development.
