The goal of the project is to contribute to improved nutritional status of at least 6.5 million resource-poor women of child-bearing age, adolescent girls, and children under five in participating countries in Africa and Asia, specifically Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria and Uganda. The project’s purpose is to develop and deliver biofortified sweetpotato varieties in these countries in an effective, efficient and equitable way; and to generate rigorous evidence and new knowledge that will stimulate and guide further investments in the utilization of biofortified crops for nutrition goals. The project pursues this objective through three outputs: (i) Developing new biofortified varieties of sweetpotato through existing breeding programmes; (ii) Supporting the development of new sustainable delivery models for scaling biofortified sweetpotato, including new public private partnerships and cost-effective delivery models in protracted crises environments; and (iii) Strengthening the evidence base on the impact of biofortified sweetpotato, and ensuring biofortification is included in international, regional, and national policies, plans, and programmes.
