The GRC jointly implements two food security projects in Gedaref and Kassala States in East Sudan with the Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS). One project is BMZ-financed and is running since May 2015 – June 2017, the other one is EuropeAid-funded with a project period from January 2015 – December 2017. The projects aim to increase agricultural diversification in altogether 16 villages in rural districts in Gedaref and Kassala, Sudan, to make the population more resilient in regards to food security. The projects focus on community-based activities and community mobilization and farmers are trained through the Farmer Field School approach and Trainings of Trainers (ToT). Sustainable agricultural and organic farming techniques are demonstrated and water harvesting systems constructed. Village gardens are established and trees planted in the villages. In addition, community committees are formed and strengthened to contribute to food security planning in their communities. The project manager will be subordinated technically to a GRC program coordinator who is in overall charge of the two projects.
