Results Stories

Find out how STDF projects are driving SPS capacity and delivering results on the ground in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Working with public and private sector partners, the STDF has helped farmers, processors and traders to export safe food and agricultural products to markets worldwide. The projects rolled out hands-on training programmes to build up local know-how and skills on good agricultural and manufacturing practices and food safety standards. Thanks to STDF's support, products across plant, fruit and vegetable value chains can be exported to global markets and farmers' incomes increased, creating a lasting impact.

A new STDF's Results book showcases how by connecting to the global marketplace, women farmers, from Chompa Debnath in Bangladesh to Chandra Kala Rai in Nepal, saw their incomes rise. Thanks to donor support, the projects championed public-private partnerships, empowered people with fresh skills and delivered cross-cutting solutions across agricultural value chains.
