An information session was held for vendors registered with the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Welfare’s Agricultural Promotion (MAP) initiative. The session aimed to inform potential vendors and suppliers about the programme and its requirements. MAP is actively seeking to establish a registry of vendors or suppliers capable of meeting the needs of farmers engaged in climate-smart agricultural production. This preparatory step is designed to ensure the successful implementation of the Matching Grant Programme.

The ‘Dhan’duveri Manfaa’ Matching Grant Programme represents a significant effort by the Ministry and IFAD to bolster sustainable agricultural practices in the Maldives. By providing financial support and fostering a network of capable vendors, the programme aims to improve agricultural productivity and resilience in the face of climate challenges.

For more information about the grant programme and vendor registration, interested parties are encouraged to contact the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Welfare.
