USAID Agriculture Education and Market Improvement Program (AEMIP)
USAID/Guinea's Agriculture Education and Market Improvement Program (AEMIP) will strengthen the capacity of agriculture education in Guinea to respond to the growing needs of farms and agriculture enterprises in the face of shifting markets and climate change. Through this
program, Winrock International and Purdue University will work in partnership with the Institut Superieur Agronomique ValÃ©ry Giscard dâ€™Estaing de Faranah (ISAVF), as well as agriculture stakeholders and local and regional educational and environmental institutions, to strengthen sustainable agriculture and improve the adoption of proven technologies by Guinean farmers. By the end of the program, ISAVF will be a recognized leader in the region for training in climate-smart agriculture and for disseminating agricultural adaptive technology. AEMIP is an Associate Award under Winrockâ€™s USAID-funded John Ogonowski and Doug Bereuter Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) Program Leader with Associates (LWA) cooperative agreement. AEMIP and F2F will leverage the skills and expertise of more than 40 short- and long-term volunteers from the U.S. to engage in demand-driven, hands-on technical assistance and training, and meaningful people-to-people exchanges, with Guinean institutions and individuals.
