SPHI Brief 2016: Scaling Up Sweetpotato Through Agriculture and Nutrition (SUSTAIN) in Malawi

This flyer outlines the progress made towards achieving the objectives of the SUSTAIN project in Malawi from 2015 to 2016. SUSTAIN is a 5-year partnership (2013-2018), coordinated by CIP and financed by the UK Department for International Development, to scale up the nutrition benefits of biofortified orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP). The plan for the 201`5/16 rainy season was to reach 20,000 households. The flyer explains, among others, the construction of a screenhouse by the largest early generation seed multiplier, and the use of the Mother Baby Approach.
