Project Details

4R Nutrient Stewardship

Project Overview

Smallholder farmers worldwide face many challenges such as limited access to the market, poor post-harvest handling, and limited quality of agriculture production due to depleted soil and unsustainable fertilizer usage. The 4R-Nutrient Stewardship Project (4R-NSP) aims to address these issues, thereby helping to increase resilience, incomes, and food security and reduce poverty for men, women, and children.

The project is a five-year initiative funded by Global Affair Canada (GAC) with a joint contribution from the Co-operative Development of Foundation of Canada (CDF Canada) and Fertilizer Canada (FC). The project’s ultimate goal is to improve the socio-economic well-being and resilience of 80,000 (50% women) smallholder farmers in Ethiopia, Ghana, and Senegal through enhanced agricultural productivity and sustainability.
