AVCD Program - Root Crops (OFSP) Baseline

As part of the Accelerated Value Chain Development (AVCD) Program, the root crops value chain aims to transform Potato and Sweetpotato Food Security, Nutrition and Incomes in Kenya. At least 93,500 smallholder households (HH) will be reached over three years. We anticipate that by the end of the project, approximately $2M in profit will be generated annually through sales of planting material and increased yields of both crops, and the dietary quality of least 54,000 children under five and 65,000 women will be improved by 20% as measured through diet diversity scores.
