In Solomon Islands, PIRAS works across 30 communities to support sustainable food production, to improve nutrition, and to strengthen inclusive local value chains by:

  • Involving women and youth producer groups in local seed supply;
  • Training farmers and vulnerable households in seed production, soil improvement, food processing, value adding and marketing;
  • Supporting vulnerable mothers through nutrition awareness and promoting home gardens;
  • Facilitating partnerships between vulnerable farmers and small and medium enterprises.
