Kyrgyzstan Agro-Input Enterprise Development Project (KAED)

In 2014, the USAID Kyrgyz Agro-Input Enterprise Development Project rehabilitated 1,500 hectares of degraded lands in Issyk-Kul province having leveraged 242000 USD from Canadian-owned Kumtor Mining Company. This PPP project improved the soil fertility and provided access to the irrigation in the areas with a scarce access to water. It increased incomes of smallholder farmers and helped them to pursue efficient crop production and water management practices on the reclaimed lands. The original project was implemented to develop the private sector agri-input supply network to serve farmers' needs and help them increase yields and profits.
