SAPA (Sustainable and Affordable Poultry for All) aims at improving the food security and rural incomes of smallholder poultry and corn farmers in Myanmar through a public private partnership with Dutch, Belgium and Myanmar parties involved.
Through this approach strengths are combined of European companies and knowledge institutions and local NGO’s and knowledge institutions active in the poultry and corn chain. SAPA receives partly funding under the Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Food Security Facility (FDOV) from the Dutch Agency of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
One of the key problems SAPA is addressing is the low agriculture productivity in Myanmar in general and in corn and poultry production specifically. The low agriculture productivity results in low rural incomes and relatively expensive food. With 25 to 50% of rural inhabitants being landless, and often without sufficient income to obtain food, it is crucial that a thriving agri-business sector is developed to generate jobs and lower the cost price of food.
Therefore the project goals are to improve food security and rural incomes of smallholders in Myanmar, through the introduction of more productive and sustainable farming practices for poultry and corn production. This will result in lower cost prices and productivity gains, making poultry more affordable, and as the major source of animal protein in Myanmar, contribute to food security.
