Concept Note of the Week of Action on Post harvest Management
25 August 2015


The Postharvest Management in Sub-Saharan Africa (PHM-SSA) is a project under the Global Programme Food Security (GPFS) of SDC coordinated by HELVETAS Swiss Inter-cooperation (HSI) and implemented in a consortium with FANRPAN (Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network), AFAAS (African Forum for Agricultural Advisory Services) and AGRIDEA. The goal of the project is to increase food security of smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa through reduced postharvest losses at farm and community level. The project duration is six years.

The project aims to improve food security (increased food self-sufficiency and incomes) of smallholder men and women farmers in SSA through reduction of postharvest losses of food crops (grains and pulses) by addressing major constraining factors of technology dissemination and adoption, knowledge and information sharing, rural advisory services (RAS) and policies related to PHM. The project has a regional focus and intervention logic, including pilot activities in Benin and Mozambique.
