Highlights from 3.5 Year of Implementation of SASHA

The Sweetpotato Action for Security and Health in Africa (SASHA) Project is a 5 year project led by the International Potato Center CIP that will develop the essential capacities, products and methods to reposition sweetpotato in the food economies of Sub-Saharan Africa. It serves as the foundation for the broader Initiative.


SPHI is a multi-partner, multi-donor initiative that seeks to reduce child undernutrition and improve smallholder incomes in 10 million African families by 2020 through the effective production and expanded use of sweetpotato.


This is a colorful presentation by SASHA and SPHI project manager Dr. Jan Low addressing the progress of the projects and constraints identified, during the Sweetpotato Speedbreeders meeting in Kigali, Rwanda 2013.
