Roots of Peace
Roots of Peace is a humanitarian organization whose mission is to rid the world of landmines and other remnants of war by transforming toxic minefields into thriving farmland and communities through a focus on sustainable, organic farming practices. Roots of Peace is implementing the Commercial Horticulture & Agricultural Marketing Program (CHAMP) in Afghanistan for USAID, along with two smaller programs. CHAMP is has received an extension from USAID to implement a program along the lines described below.
CHAMP Project Description
Under this three-year extension, CHAMP will provide focused attention to supply chains, marketing, and export promotion of Afghan fruits, nuts, vegetables and other high market value crops to international markets. CHAMP will continue to provide support to traders and the CHAMP trade offices established in New Delhi, India and Dubai, UAE to promote Afghan agricultural products and boost their export from Afghanistan. CHAMP will expand its current focus from post-harvest handling and marketing of almonds, grapes, apples, pomegranates, melons and apricots to include other high value agricultural products such as saffron, vegetables, walnuts, pistachio, cherries and others. CHAMP will help Afghan traders and agribusinesses export high value crops to wholesale markets and supermarkets in the region by focusing on two major components: 1) Supply Chain Improvement and 2) Export Market Development to strengthen commercial horticultural exports from Afghanistan. CHAMP will develop a professional marketing program to promote exports and build the branding and demand for Afghan products in key international markets. As part of trade facilitation services and export promotion, CHAMP will work with participating traders, relevant government & non-government institutions, and other donor projects to provide assistance with trade credit, quality & safety improvement, food safety trainings, compliance with international markets standards, and packaging improvement. CHAMP will also enhance the capacity of local packaging manufacturers and freight and logistics facilitators to promote agricultural exports from Afghanistan.
