The Southern part of Mozambique, in the provinces of Maputo, Gaza and Inhambane, rural households systematically face prolonged drought resulting in lack of water for animals and people, lack of forag...e, high mortality of animals and food insecurity and hence putting them in a situation of fragility. As to build capacity and resilience of communities, the Government and IFAD have worked on the development of initiatives aiming improving availability of water constructing multipurpose boreholes which supplies quality water for animals and people. Additionally, rural women develop small gardens for vegetables production. This is one of the most important interventions of the IFAD-funded Project, the Pro-poor Value Chain Development Project in the Maputo and Limpopo Corridors (PROSUL) contributing for strengthening resilience...

Agriculture has historically been the mainstay of the Sri Lankan economy and remains central to the country’s modern rural economy. Sri Lanka is considered as an emerging economy with a per capita domestic product (GDP) of $3,924 (2015) while the agricultural sector represents 12% of the national GDP, employed persons 28.2% of labour force (2015). Rice is the staple food of majority of people in the country, but faddy filled is not generating adequate rice in recent years for even consumption purpose. So country has to import even basic food needs, which is not healthy for any Economy. As a remedy, what has to be done? As per my thought, country has to foster entrepreneurs to move export oriented business entities by utilizing its inherent competitive advantages (Geographical location, fertile soil, and quality of products etc.) specially, promote traditional plantation sector, which is introduced Colonial Era (1802-1948). Namely, Ceylon tea, Coffee & Spices which have higher demand in world market as at now.
Historically, Sri Lanka has been famous for an exquisite range of Spices for centuries. This includes Cinnamon, Pepper, Cloves, Cardamoms, Nutmeg, Mace, Vanilla & many other more. Cinnamon grown and produced in Sri Lanka has acquired.

Long standing reputation in the international market due to its unique quality, color, flavor and aroma & currently produce 90% for international market. Also, unfulfilled world market Demand of natural Vanilla has created substantial business opportunity. (Now price of 1 kilo of Natural cured vanilla is Exceeded usd 500

One of the main challenges facing the agricultural sector development of Sri Lanka is to increase the number & variety of viable & sustainable Economic agricultural enterprises. As a fulfillment of this , being practical, I have taken a step to Develop sustainable Spice cultivation project focusing on Vanilla Cultivation initially , which is Aiming to established to enhance the Agricultural economy & livelihood of Sri Lanka while protecting the environment & bio diversity of the Country. so far I have achieved massive progress. To move further, just pointing out need of government level support and international level.

The development and operation of a cost-efficient mechanism that ensures direct investment in rural people through innovation, knowledge-sharing, synergistic collaborations and active policy engagemen...t towards their empowerment for an all-inclusive and sustainable transformation of rural areas is the panacea for rural transformation, rural poverty eradication, sustainable agricultural development, and global food security and nutrition.

This IFAD is already doing and should intensify!

With the right support and investments, rural women can make an enormous contribution to solving many of the problems we face, including poverty and hunger.

Rural women are the poorest of the poor in Sudan. Access to education is severly limited and they often have little say in the running of their families or communities.

But many are finding a voice through village-level savings and credit groups thanks to a project called ABSUMI that is helping to transform women from subsistence farmers to entrepreneurs.
