Smallholder Tree Crop Support Project (STCRSP - IFAD)

This project is designed to reach the most vulnerable farming households in Liberia’s Lofa County. Its target population includes poor smallholders who cultivate less than 2 ha of land and rely on subsistence farming, as well as households headed by women, young people, and war-wounded and disabled people. The specific objectives of the STCRSP are: (i) to increase the quantity sold and price received by poor farmers for cocoa and coffee through rehabilitation of plantations; (ii) to improve access to markets through rural roads rehabilitation and maintenance system development; and (iii) to strengthen the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) and/ or private extension services as well as Farmer-based Organizations. These objectives are to be achieved through four related and reinforcing components: (i) cocoa/ coffee rehabilitation; (ii) rehabilitation of farm to market roads; (iii) institutional capacity building; and (iv) project management.
