P4P in Liberia
In Liberia, P4P addresses constraints along the value chain, including production, post-harvest handling, marketing and quality control. WFP works in partnership with the government, NGOs and other UN agencies, linking its purchasing activities to a capacity development programme focused on increasing smallholders’ market competitiveness and productivity. These activities help prepare Liberian smallholders for expansion to markets beyond WFP. The project also supports the active participation of women farmers, assisting them to benefit economically from their work, gaining confidence and voice in their communities and homes.
