Feed the Future Food, Agribusiness and Rural Markets II Project Final Report

Abt Global


February 9, 2017
The people of South Sudan have experienced tremendous hardship and almost all news reports coming out of the country in recent years have been very negative. Despite the difficult environment, USAID has had a positive impact by generating hope and building prosperity for many rural poor in the country’s Greenbelt region. The purpose of this final project report is to convey that success.

The Food, Agribusiness and Rural Markets (FARM) II project’s approach was different from the assistance other international organizations had provided to these farmers in the past. Rather than giving them food or commodity assistance, FARM II, like its predecessor FARM I, helped thousands of Greenbelt farmers plan and work towards a brighter future by introducing them to practical farming technology and knowledge. This approach dramatically improved their lives.

FARM II is a one year follow-on to the FARM project. It is funded by USAID and carried out by Abt Global.
