Adventist Development and Relief Agency Canada is supporting Adventist Development and Relief Agency Indonesia with a three-year agriculture and livelihood project in Sigi District, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia.
In September 2018 an earthquake hit Central Sulawesi in Indonesia resulting in landslides and liquefaction that led to extensive loss of lives, homes, farmland, and assets. Sigi district was particularly affected and faces high food insecurity, reliance on assistance, loss of livelihoods and facilities, declining household income as a result of damaged agricultural land, loss of livestock and lack of inputs and technology. ADRA responded to that crisis with a previous project.
This current project follows up on that work and aims to enhance the food security of disaster-affected households by improving livelihoods, food availability and affordability through increased crop production and enhanced income from on-farm or off-farm interventions. This will be achieved by training farmers groups on improved crop production and livestock management practices, providing training and employment opportunities off-farm, and increasing access to crop production and livestock management services.
The project will target 2,000 people (500 households).
