Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

As stated by the AfDB, the Integrated Livestock Value Chain Development Project in Burkina Faso (PDCVIE-BF) is designed to help add value to livestock production by developing and integrating meat product value chains.
PDCVIE-BF implementation will help to:
(i) increase the added value of the livestock meat (cattle and small ruminants), pork and poultry sectors;
(ii) promote food security;
(iii) increase economic competitiveness by adding value to animal resources;
(iv) create jobs and thereby combat poverty; and
(v) build the resilience of agro-pastoralists and agro-pastoral systems to climate change.

The project is designed as an ecosystem based on a value chain approach in which stakeholders strengthen links, become more professional by specialising around the various links in the value chains and industrial units, and establish frameworks for consultation. The model will involve the private sector, stock breeders/cooperatives, public institutions, and research/innovation, and will adopt the TAAT approach promoted by the Bank.
The project is structured around three (3) components including two (2) operational components and one (1) component for the management and implementation of project. The components are:
(i) Increase productivity and production in target herds;
(ii) promote standard processing of targeted meat products and their access to markets; and
(iii) Project coordination and management.

Project activities include the construction of a slaughterhouse and meat processing plant in the administrative regions of Hauts-Bassins, Cascades, Boucle du Mouhoun, and Sud-Ouest. The project also aims to support crops for animal feed, and technical support to livestock and poultry farmers. As stated by the AfDB, the number of direct project beneficiaries is estimated at 30,000 value chain actors.

Project documents mention the "Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation - Savannahs" (TAAT-S) programme. "This initiative promotes an approach in which public intervention in member countries works in conjunction with the private sector to facilitate the introduction of multiple factors (adapted seeds, agricultural machinery, pesticides, favourable environment, etc.) needed to create the conditions for the development of commercial production hubs within an integrated maize/soya-livestock (mainly poultry) agricultural value chain."

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing crmuinfo@afdb.org, b.kargougou@afdb.org, b.fall@afdb.org, and/or s.toure@afdb.org.
