The program entitled ‘Approche Communale pour le Marché Agricole au Bénin – Phase 2 (Local Approach to Agricultural Market in Benin - Phase 2) – ACMA2, funded by the Dutch Embassy in Benin, aims at improving food security and nutrition in 28 communes of Ouémé, Plateau, Zou and Collines Regions (Départements) in Benin.
