Capacity building to empower scientist
The program seeks to contribute to improved food and nutritional security, household incomes and stability of the bio-physical and socio-economic components of the production.

The ESMF provides guidance on how environmental and social aspects of ECAAT-P shall be identified, assessed and managed. Specific locations including Districts, Schools, and Link Farmers have not been identified at this stage; hence it provides a framework to assist project implementers to screen the projects at planning stage and institute measures to address adverse environmental and social impacts during implementation.

The major safeguards focus in ECAAT-P will be on the use and management of pesticides and agricultural chemicals at the selected farmers and schools’ gardens. In addition, issues of soil conservation will also be looked into the project especially in highland areas.
