Summary: 

One of the main challenges facing farmers is a lack of money to survive from one crop cycle to the next. (..) A two-year project co-funded by EuropeAid with €1.3 million in the provinces of Cabo Delgado and Nampula has focused on “better access to quality seeds, increased yield of seeds and food crops and reduced storage losses for farmers.” In all 38,000 rural farming families have been affected with 150 farming councils trained in “post-harvest technologies, quality seed production and seed bank management.” All of this works towards increasing food security in the region.
