Through the first four Calls for Proposals, the GAFSP Public Sector Window has allocated US$1.2 billion in recipient-executed funding to 31 low-income countries in Africa; Central, East, and South Asia; and Latin America and the Caribbean. GAFSP resources are being used to help finance strategic programs in these low-income countries to alleviate poverty, improve rural incomes, and improve food and nutrition security.

GAFSP projects focus on country-led investments in one or more of the five GAFSP components: raising agricultural productivity, linking farmers to markets, reducing risk and vulnerability, improving non-farm rural livelihoods, and technical assistance, institution-building, and capacity strengthening.

The targeting to countries in fragile and conflict affected situations is to address the underfunding of such countries to date.

    Thank you for the communication! Unfortunately, Uganda is not one of the target countries listed. Yet, it is one of the top African countries receiving refugees. I wonder is how my department can participate in empowering these refugees/reception communities in matters of a programme like this one. Can you advise?

    Please can you advise of project funding for Zimbabwe?
    I represent an NGO for a marginalised province, where climate change is happening as we speak. Our eastern border was tragically hit, as you most probably know, with Cyclone Idai, yet in the western part of the country – bordering Botswana, we are into yet another year of devasting drought, deforestation is occuring daily as hardwood trees are cut for charcoal (income), for heating and cooking, assistance for sustainable farming is urgently required.
    Your advice is most welcome.
    Thanking you in advance.
