In addition to new roads, irrigation networks and markets, the project entails techniques on quality improvement, conservation, processing and marketing. These activities will be accompanied by capacity building to develop the domestic expertise that is crucial to managing these innovations. Phase II, launched in 2015, is expected to continue until 2021 and support an estimated 200,000 people in the country of 212,000.
