TURKMENISTAN – Support for Further Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development in Turkmenistan (Phase III)


The overall objective of the project is to support the Government of Turkmenistan in the achievement of the national sector objectives with regard to sustainable agriculture, rural development, value chain development and institutional support.

The specific objective is to increase the productivity and competitiveness of the agro-food sector through activities aimed at improving the agro-food production, processing and marketing, food safety and strengthening the capacity of Turkmen agriculture institutions.

The project will support the delivery of two interconnected results (agri production/processing/marketing improved and capacity building strengthened), ensuring optimum impact on competitiveness of the sector. It will foster the key principles of ownership and partnership development. It will continue to strengthen advisory services to primary producers (also on the basis of the capacity building already provided in phases 1 & II).  The project is designed to support human development enhancing support to sustainable agriculture and natural resources management. 1) Building on work done during Phases 1 and 2 of the SARD Project

The earlier phases of SARD focused primarily on building capacities within the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) and its support offices in four of the five veleyats. This provided support to build better advisory services to primary producers, especially emergent private leaseholders involved in non-State Order farm enterprises

The strategy chosen is to work on enabling competitiveness of the agri production, processing and marketing sector through an integrated approach. The project shall combine support to agricultural value chain development (fruit and vegetable, dairy and meat) with strengthened capacity of the central and local state agri industrial institutions. It will be ensured that the two results are mutually reinforcing, through common training activities, establishment of Technical Working Groups (TWG) and constant coordination process between the MoA and the private sector.

The Technical Assistance Team (TAT) has therefore reconfigured the project activities into four pillars which clarify the overall logic of intervention of the project, namely:

  • Private sector development of Agri-Food Sector
  • Value Chain Development (Food Safety/Quality, HVA Development, Water, Environmental Issues)
  • Information Provision and Servicing to all Value Chain Operators
  • High value added product development. Market Linkages and Agri Food Export Development (Targeting Import Substitution and Export Development)
  • Food safety across the Agri-Food Value Chain
  • Capacity
