Food Security, Nutrition and Resilience Activity

The goal of the Food Security, Nutrition and Resilience (FSNR) activity is to increase agriculture-led economic growth, through improved productivity to enhance food security and nutrition.

The FSNR activity promotes a shift from a historic focus on rice and cassava towards a diverse mix of nutritious

and high-value crops.

The FSNR activity will promote food security and nutrition by increasing the production, availability, utilization, and demand of diverse, nutritious, and high-value crops.

The sustainable intensification of diverse high-value crops will increase farmers’ incomes, strengthen household and community resilience, and promote broad economic growth.

This activity will also contribute to the cross-cutting priorities of inclusive development, gender equality, youth engagement, and sustainable climate-smart agriculture.The FSNR activity is a five-year activity with a total estimated amount of approximately $20 million.

FSNR will target smallholder and subsistence farmers, agricultural cooperatives, and women and youth groups.

This activity will be implemented in USAID/Liberia's zone of influence (Lofa, Bong, Nimba, Margibi, Grand Bassa, and Montserrado); however, limited activities outside of the zone of influence will be considered if they align with program objectives, leverage other USAID, GOL or other donor and stakeholder programs, and have limited additional logistic requirements.
