LIBERIA: Community of Hope Agriculture Project (CHAP) – Activities and Impact Update for the Ministry of Agriculture
Presentation by Robert Bimba (Community of Hope Agriculture) to the Ministry of Agriculture in Liberia (January 11, 2019).
CHAP, an SRI pioneer in Liberia, has been helping to improve farmers’ productivity since 2008. Among other activities, CHAP provides leadership in SRI/SCI extension and helps farmers adapt and access new equipment, acquire certified seed, develop local markets for rice, and trial organic inputs.
CHAP just finished working on a two year project associated with the Japanese Rice Grant (entitled ‘Economic recovery of Liberian rice farmers in Ebola affected counties’). The project, which worked with 9,000 farmers in five counties and promoted SRI, was funded by the Japanese Govt. through IFAD. Download the report from the link: Impact Report
