Solar Market Gardens in Benin

The global food crisis is having an important impact on food security in Sub-Saharan Africa, especially among those living in areas of marginal agricultural production. This program focuses on Solar Market Garden (SMG), which is a multisectoral, integrated approach to achieving food security in vulnerable populations. The goal of the program is to design, implement, monitor and evaluate the adoption of a SMG program to enhance the nutritional status of infants and young children and their mothers through the use of solar powered drip irrigation (PVDI) systems.
