The USAID Fertilizer Sector Improvement (FSI) was a three-year project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to improve food security and increase profitability for smallholder farmers by sustainably increasing agricultural productivity. Implemented by the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC) in geographic focal areas of Ayeyarwaddy, Bago, and Yangon in Burma, Cultural Practice, LLC (CP) provided support to ensure the gender issues were integrated appropriately in the project. A key activity of the project was a gender and value chain analysis to reveal the gender-based constraints associated with women’s empowerment and with the adoption of fertilizer deep placement technology to increase rice productivity.
CP and IFDC published the USAID/Fertilizer Sector Improvement Project Gender Assessment in March 2015.
