Dili, April 6, 2015Today, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded its new agriculture project in Timor-Leste.  Recognizing the tremendous potential of rural communities as high quality fruit and vegetable producers, USAID welcomes Cardno Emerging Markets and its partners HIAM Health, The Norman Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture/Texas A&M AgriLife Research, and SSG Advisors as the implementers for USAID's Avansa Agrikultura (Advancing Agriculture) Project. 

Over the next five years, USAID's Avansa Agrikultura Project will focus on improving the country’s horticulture value chain—including farm inputs, agricultural extension, storage, transportation, trade, and policies—by providing technical assistance and facilitating market linkages within the vegetable and fruit sectors in over 250 communities throughout five districts (Aileu, Ainaro, Bobonaro, Dili, and Ermera). The project will also assist the Government of Timor-Leste in its effort to join ASEAN by providing technical assistance in meeting certain ASEAN “Single Window” requirements.
