The GROWING project seeks to provide support for women farmers in selected food value chains through the provision of climate-resilient seeds and climate-smart farming techniques, as well as means of assessing the market. The project aims to improve the nutritional health of women and young children by identifying the key macronutrients that are missing in existing diets and innovative ways of getting the most out of crops. The project will be implemented in six districts/municipal areas within the Northern, North East, and Savannah Regions. The project is expected to, by the end of its implementation, ensure that at least 40,000 urban consumers have access to nutritious food promoted by GROWING.
