COMPONENT

ASPIRE has four components. These components correspond to the three Outcomes, with Components 3 and 4 both contributing to Outcome 3.

COMPONENT 1: EVIDENCE BASED POLICY

1. A national investment programme that can be supported by multiple donors is designed to implement an updated extension policy that provides smallholder farmers with access to quality information services

COMPONENT 2: CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT FOR EXTENSION

2. MAFF has institutional and human resources capacity to manage an effective, demand driven system linking researchers and knowledge-based agencies to extension agents in public sector, private sector and civil society and to farmers

COMPONENT 3: IMPROVED EXTENSION SERVICES

COMPONENT 4: INFRASTRUCTURE SUPPORTING CLIMATE RESILIENT AGRICULTURE

3. At least 120,000 smallholders have improved and resilient farm businesses as a result of integrated, demand led extension services and investments in climate resilient infrastructure

Each targeted province must select 6 districts and 6 communes per districts as targeted areas

The outreach target for Component 3 is 120, 000 households and the outreach target for Component 4 is 70,000 households, of whom it is expected that about half will be Component 3 participants.
