SPHI Brief 2016: Nutritious Orange-Fleshed-Sweetpotato for Niassa, Mozambique

The key aim of the ‘Nutritious Orange-Fleshed-Sweetpotato for Niassa, Mozambique’ project, which began in November 2012, is to improve vitamin A and energy intake for at least 20,000 rural households with women and young children using orange-fleshed sweetpotato focused, food-based approaches that ensure at least 20% of households growing OFSP earn 50 USD or more per year from OFSP sales, and increase average sweetpotato yields by 50% by mid-2016. It is implemented in 8 districts of Niassa province. This brief sums up the specific objectives and strategies and achievements of the project from July 2015 to June 2016.
