Feed the Future Malawi Improved Seed Systems and Technologies

The International Potato Center (CIP) and its partners in Malawi are implementing the , Malawi Improved Seed Systems and Technologies project which has been designed to expand the production and utilization of nutritious orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP) in seven districts in USAID’s Feed the Future (FTF) zones of inuence in Malawi. The project will result in improved diet diversity, in particular through increased vitamin A intake among young children and women of reproductive age,  enhanced food security through more productive and resilient farming systems, and increase rural incomes from sale of OFSP The project will reach 50,000 smallholder farming households (HH), at least 80% of which will be vulnerable households with children under ve years of age. Through further collaborative partnerships and community distribution, 300,000 additional households will receive OFSP planting material resulting in a doubling of the area under OFSP production in the target districts.
