Presentation 9: Scaling out potato and sweetpotato interventions in SNNPR and Tigray Ethiopia Product Development Ethiopia

This presentation documents a project set to scale out potato and sweetpotato interventions in Ethiopia. The main focus being to improved food and nutrition security among vulnerable households with young children in Tigray and SNNPR through increased production and consumption of micronutrient-rich sweetpotato and potato varieties as part of diversified diets. The major observations outlined include, OFSP products development improves local diets, and low root production levels undermine scale out of products beyond household consumption. In conclusion, varieties with high dry matter contents, market research on products, adaptive research, and continued community recipe developments for nutrition are urgently needed.
