The two-year USAID Resilient Agriculture Activity in the Dominican Republic will address the dramatic increases in food prices, crude oil, and commodities, including fertilizers and other common agricultural inputs, resulting from supply chain disruptions from the Russian invasion of Ukraine and Covid-19 pandemic. NCBA CLUSA will tackle these challenges through market-based climate-smart interventions that create entrepreneurship opportunities for food insecure populations in the DR’s Macro Region. As a Farmer-to-Farmer buy-in, the project will include a volunteer technical assistance component.
