India's Potential Best Practices for Food and Nutrition Security: Food Agriculture and Rural Markets Systems (FARMS) Project

Publisher: US AID India

FARMS is different from most foreign assistance projects in that it was created to be a development laboratory for fostering innovation and testing best practices, rather than a project focused on accomplishing one narrow purpose. Thus FARMS sets out to develop an inventory of best practices (BP) from all over India that have the prospect of alleviating all or part of the recognized constraints to greater food security and nutritional adequacy in India and in other developing countries. These best practices will undergo pilot testing and/or rigorous evaluations and then dissemination to target zones.
