The PHM-SSA project is being implemented by a consortium including Helvetas, AFAAS, Food and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) and AGRIDEA in Mozambique and Benin. The project aims to improve food security of smallholder men and women farmers in SSA through reduction of postharvest losses of food crops (grains and pulses) with a market system approach. The project draws lessons and experiences from the implementing countries that are shared at the continental level. A similar project, Grain Postharvest Loss Prevention Project (GPLP) is being implemented in Tanzania. The projects are funded by the Swiss Agency for International Development and Cooperation (SDC).
