Postharvest Loss Management

Linkages and further initiatives

Linkages with other PHM mandates of SDC and further initiatives

This initiative will establish links with other on-going and upcoming PHM mandates financed by SDC (global and regional cooperation):

  • FAO/IFAD/WFP (starting in 2013)
  • FAO-SDC Ethiopia (starting in 2013)
  • Postharvest project (metal silo, superbags) implemented by CIMMYT (Kenya, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, second phase started in 2012)
  • Postharvest project in Tanzania (metal silo, superbags, other innovations; starting in 2013)
  • Harmonised Seed Security Project (HaSSP) implemented by FANRPAN in Malawi, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe (2010-2013).

Annex 7

Annex 7 illustrates the linkage between the different initiatives in relation to the three common outcomes. Particular emphasis will be given to contribute to and learn from the other initiatives through the capitalisation of successful experiences in PHM and to feed these experiences into networks (especially AFAAS and FANRPAN), e-learning processes and the CoP which will be facilitated by the FAO/IFAD/WFP initiative of GPFS.

In addition and beyond SDC supported initiatives in SSA, linkages will be established to on-going policy/advocacy activities e.g.FANRPAN is a collaborator with WFP purchase for progress (P4P) initiative. P4P provides smallholder farmers in 21 pilot countries with a greater incentive to invest in their production; at the same time invests in capacity building at country level in areas such as post-harvest handling or storage.
