Strengthening Agricultural Vital Subsectors is a USAID-funded program implemented by AAC-Lushnja. The program is designed to stimulate sustained growth in Albania’s agriculture sector through improved productivity and competitiveness. In addition to linking farmers to markets, our program provides direct assistance to improve crop production, post-harvest handling, packaging and marketing for Albania’s high-value agriculture products—all important factors that affect the ability of farmers, processors and traders to meet ever-changing market requirements.
SAVS started on September 23, 2013 and it will end on September 22, 2017.
AAC-L through technical assistance supports Albanian agricultural producers and other players in the market to expand production and improve competitiveness by improving producers’ capacity for competitive commercial farming; and strengthening capability for market development.
