DAPP Projects

The Climate Smart Agriculture and Entrepreneurship in Young Farmers Clubs Project  is a two and half year  Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Co-operation (CTA) funded project. The project is being implemented by DAPP in Chibombo district in the Central Province of Zambia.The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the advancement of youth involvement in agricultural entrepreneurship with the support of Information and Communication Technologies to promote climate-resilient agro-food value chains.

The project will also work towards increasing young people’s self-employment opportunities in agriculture by promoting viable small agro-food value chain businesses among 300 young farmers in the project area.

The project will use tablets which contains a farming curriculum specifically designed for Zambia; During meetings and training sessions the club members will use the tablet to learn together with the support of DAPP’s Farmers’ Club Facilitator and the Camp Extension Officer from Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock. The project will conduct trainings in  Climate Smart Agriculture practices on demonstration plots, multiply new crop varieties, organize common marketing of crops, establish savings clubs and obtain micro-financing, learn how to process crops and market the products. The project will also encourage the young farmers to take an active part in the project activities, including planning, implementation and monitoring and evaluation, and thus build their long-term capacity. It will further support the establishment of small agro-food value chain addition enterprises for the Young Farmers’ Clubs and promotion of entrepreneurship skills.
