    STAR-P focuses on addressing critical market failures limiting the development of rice, oil palm, and horticulture value chains. The /project would reach its objectives of increasing agricultural productivity and promoting smallholder commercialization by facilitating private sector investment in selected value-chains and by fostering productive linkages between smallholder farmers and selected agribusiness firms through a climate business lens. Adaptation approaches and mitigation measures will be applied to enhance climate change resiliency and minimize climate-related risks in the production of rice and oil palm.

    Beneficiaries

    The direct beneficiaries of the project are approximately 38,000 smallholder farmers, of whom at least 30 per cent will be women and young farmers. Intermediate beneficiaries will include agribusinesses and business development service enterprises that have business links to smallholder farmers in the targeted value chains.
