FAO: Supporting smallholder farmers to reduce rural poverty in Albania

- Actively empowering farmers for improved livelihoods in three municipalities.


Despite the limitations in travel and face-to-face meetings due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, FAO has continued its work in the municipalities of Belsh, Malesi e Madhe and Korca to empower smallholders and family farms for improved rural livelihood by sustainably increasing productivity through technical and managerial capacity development.

To that effect, more than 70 farmers together with the extension service in three municipalities have been assisted to improve their on- and off-farm, income diversification activities, gain knowledge on food safety practices and farm accountability techniques.
