The Royal Government of Bhutan (RGoB) has implemented the Food Security and Agriculture Productivity Project (FSAPP), a Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) financed project. The project is implemented in five south-western Dzongkhags namely Chhukha, Dagana, Haa, Samtse and Sarpang. The project will benefit approximately 10,400 beneficiaries through its integrated interventions. Taking a blanket coverage approach, the project will attempt to address the various needs of small and poor farmers that make up almost the entire population of the selected 24 Gewogs. The project aims to increase agricultural productivity and enhance access to markets for farmers in selected gewogs in south-western Bhutan thus achieving the national policy of food and nutrition security. The project supports the Royal Government of Bhutan’s efforts to reduce rural poverty, food insecurity and high levels of malnutrition through climate smart agricultural interventions. The project expects to enhance agricultural productivity and increase farmers’ access to local and export markets leading to achievement of food and nutrition security.The project seeks to address inter-connected problems faced by farmers and rural households through a set of integrated, consolidated, area-specific interventions that respond to local constraints, potentials and priorities. For this, the project adopts a multi pronged approach: (i) focusing on the farmer as – the primary beneficiary and lead player in food security, nutrition and commercialization of agriculture, (ii) productivity enhancement of food crops – rice, potato, vegetables, pulses, quinoa and high-value crops – spices (especially large cardamom & ginger) and citrus for improved food and nutrition security, and (iii) linking farmers to agri-markets through a value chain approach. In the west-central region, the project covers the five gewogs viz. Drujeygang, Kana, Lamoijikha, Nichula and Karmaling under Dagana Dzongkhag. The project attempt to address the various needs of small and poor farmers that make up almost the entire population of the selected five gewogs for agriculture development. The ARDC, Bajo acts as the Project Support Team (PST) for project sites at Dagana Dzongkhag.
