$5.3M USAID CAPA initiative to propel food security in Guyana
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) officially launched the Caribbean Agricultural Productivity Improvement Activity (CAPA), a program that aims at increasing food security efforts, while strengthening the livelihoods of farmers locally. The three-year $5.3 million project will focus on providing support to farmers to increase the production of fruit and vegetables, and building connections between consumers. It will also input suppliers, and help with improving farm-level extension systems.
CAPA is implemented by IESC with partner the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA).
