Funded by the German government, this food security project is implemented in 8 communes of Ampanihy, Southern Madagascar. ZINA includes three main components: health, nutrition and WASH, agriculture, resilience and disaster risk management. The project is targeting 4,500 households, or around 22,500 individuals.
Through the agriculture component, ZINA aims to increase food availability by promoting agriculture production, livestock and market access.
Through the resilience component, the project works to strengthen the community’s capacity to alleviate the impact of natural disasters and climate change.
The health component of the project aims to improve health and nutrition status of women and children, and to eliminate chronic malnutrition among children under 5.
In order to help beneficiary households achieve food security and improved health status, the ZINA project accompanies its interventions in agriculture, resilience, health and nutrition, with the rehabilitation of water infrastructure.
