The Syria Recovery Trust Fund (SRTF) has announced the approval of Phase II of the agriculture project known as “Support to Potato Producers in Northern Aleppo”. The project will build on ongoing SRTF agriculture efforts in the region and address the increased demand to revive potato production around Northern Aleppo.
Via Phase II, the SRTF aims to provide an additional number of farmers with potato tubers as well as farming inputs and equipment that would revitalize and enhance regional food security. Farmers will be trained on Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA), which will increase their capacity and improve their farming skills, resulting in more produce.
The project has a budget of over €2 million and aims to benefit some 800 farmers and 24,000 laborers over an 18-month period.
