Increased sustainable economic opportunities and decreasing food insecurity
Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, the CASH program focused on high value chains of coffee, horticultural crops, honey, artisan crafts and livestock. The main objective of the CASH program was to improve the food security situation in the seven target governorates of Sana’a, Dhamar, Raymah, Ibb, Taiz, Lahj and Al Dhali in Yemen. The program aimed to revitalize the targeted high value crop value chains so that a broad cross-section of the rural population can have access to markets that will lead to improved incomes. An increase in income, especially for women, would improve food security and subsequently reduce levels of malnutrition and stunting.
