Boosting ag productivity and expanding trade of fruits and vegetables
The five-year USAID-funded Feed the Future Resilient Agricultural Markets Activity (RAMA) is being
implemented in Mozambique’s Beira Corridor. Its primary aim is to support local producers to increase
agricultural productivity, profitability and climate change resilience.
The program consists of four components: 1) Behavior Change Communication; 2) Model Family Farms; 3)
Sustainable Extension Services; and 4) Strengthened Market Systems. Components 1 and 2 will increase
demand by raising awareness and demonstrating effectiveness of technologies and practices, including
resilient agricultural practices and water management and irrigation. Components 3 and 4 will support supply
improvements, leading to increased availability, accessibility and affordability of inputs and improved
private-sector-led advisory services.
Through its Farmer-to-Farmer mechanism, RAMA also fields high impact international technical volunteers to
support host agricultural institutions are also receiving subgrants from the project.
