The Project will provide credit and training to about 66,000 farm households in 26 counties of five municipalities in central and southern Shanxi. Of these, 11 are poverty counties and 12 are on the priority list for treatment of accelerated soil erosion in the PRC. The Project comprises four components (i) transition to high-value farm production by adopting technologies and practices that ensure environmental sustainability and increase farm income; (ii) strengthening of farm-market linkages by supporting on-farm and industrial agroprocessing and marketing of high-value products; (iii) capacity-building and training of farmers, farmer associations, and technical support agencies to support high-value production and processing of farm products; and (iv) project management to support efficient project implementation. To keep project implementation manageable, each participating county will take up two of the three activities in the first component-perennial crops, annual crops, and livestock.
