Responding to COVID-19: Modern and Resilient Agri-food Value Chains

On January 8, 2021 the World Bank approved the Modern and Resilient Agri-food Value Chains Project. The project development objective is to promote an agro-industrialization strategy that minimizes food loss, increases the adoption of climate-resilient technologies, and advances the COVID-19 emergency response for beneficiaries in select value chains. Beneficiaries of the project include micro, small, and medium agribusinesses and agro-industries, producers’ associations, and producers’ groups. The Bank states the project will improve Guatamalen’s year-round access to diversified foods at affordable prices and improve nutrition.
