2019 SPHI Brief 31. Moving ahead with the nutritious sweetpotato in Inhambane, Mozambique.

From the lessons learned from previous activities in the Niassa province and recognizing that the agro-climatic conditions were completely different, the project started to implement field activities in a new province, Inhambane, on August 21, 2018. During the launch of the agricultural campaign for 2018-2019, the Inhambane government’s agricultural director appreciated the Nutritious Sweetpotato project and showed high support concerning the selected districts for implementing its activities utilizing the orangefleshed sweetpotato (OFSP). All economic activity technicians (SDAEs) were involved in the training process, which covered agronomic information as well as culinary demonstrations to improve the quality of the daily diet at the community level and raise OFSP demand.
