    Project OSRO/LIR/903/SWE was funded by the Swedish Government and implemented between May 2009 and June 2010, with a budget of 522,229 USD, by the Emergency Rehabilitation and Coordination Unit of FAO in Monrovia. The FAO Emergency Operations Service (TCEO) in headquarters was the project budget holder and operating unit, the Seed and Plant Genetic Resources Service (AGPS) the Leading Technical Unit (LTU). The Agriculture Coordinator for Montserrado County was appointed as the focal person withi n the MoA to supervise the project’s implementation. Nine NGOs were engaged in the project’s implementation (both inputs distribution and training) in the original five targeted counties, while in Gbarpolu the project was jointly implemented by FAO, the MoA and the Ministry of Gender and Development (MoGD). In spite of the very limited time frame and budget of the project, it went far beyond emergency, especially by providing training to trainers (ToT) and farmers (ToF). While it is eventually p retentious to expect sustainability from giving hand-outs (seeds and watering cans) to communities, the training component achieved in fact sustained success among the beneficiaries.
