The project’s goal is to improve livelihood perspectives in the agricultural sector along the whole value chain from seed to consumption and to contribute to peaceful coexistence between and within communities. The project follows three main objectives: • Increasing the yield of smallholder households • Promotion of employment prospects in the broader agricultural sector and in the food industry • Fostering peaceful local participation and decision-making processes with a focus on increasing the economic, social and political participation. RePLECA is partnering with international and local partners to deliver context-sensitive and tailored services.
