Dissemination of Orange-Fleshed Sweetpotato (OFSP) Taking Shape in Nigeria

The Reaching Agents of Change (RAC) project is a 3-year initiative implemented by the International Potato Center (CIP) and Helen Keller International (HKI). The development goal of RAC is to increase the rates of vitamin A intake in targeted beneficiary countries (primarily Tanzania, Mozambique, Nigeria, and to a lesser extent Ghana and Burkina Faso). RAC aims to generate new investments to scale up adoption of orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP), which is rich in pro-vitamin A. The RAC initiative focuses on capacity strengthening for sustainable up-scaling / out-scaling of OFSP by focusing on policies, resource mobilization, capacity for seed multiplication and distribution – taking a value chain approach
