USAID Office of Agriculture Commercial Horticulture and Agricultural Marketing Program Mid-Term Evaluation

The Commercial Horticulture and Agricultural Marketing Program (CHAMP), implemented by Roots of Peace (ROP), is a four-year, $30.4 million activity to assist Afghan farmers to shift to higher value perennial horticulture crops by providing orchard development, vineyard trellising, and marketing to link producers to merchants for both import substitution and exports. Key to all components of CHAMP is the fact that all beneficiaries provide cost-sharing payments, typically 25% of costs, to build long term ownership and buy-in of the farmers, women and traders.
