During the 2014 Annual Consultation, P4P partner Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) showed this video, which illustrates their collaboration with P4P in South Sudan. This partnership demonstrates how WFP’s demand can synergize efforts already being carried out by development partners such as GIZ, who train smallholders to improve the quantity and quality of their yields.
“It is a win-win situation because GIZ is now assured that the excess production that they are supporting enters into a market. And it is a win-win situation for WFP because we are assured that there is actually surplus to buy because GIZ is supporting the farmers. And the farmers win because now they have an assured market, they have more income and they are becoming more resilient in their lives,” says Emmanuela Mashayo, P4P country coordinator in South Sudan.
