Project Description

This project aims to contribute to the improvement of food and nutrition security as well as diversification of the national economy. It will primarily focus on the corridors of the major commercial centres of Brazzaville and Pointe Noire, and the farming basins in the departments of Plateaux, Pool, Bouenza, Cuvette and, Niari.  Project activities will focus on four value chains (cassava, maize, poultry and fish) that have been prioritized by the direct stakeholders concerned, based on market demand, their contribution to the national economy (import substitution) and their potential impact on farming households, youth and women. The project comprises the following components: (i) skills development and promotion of agricultural entrepreneurship; (ii) improvement of the productivity and resilience of agricultural production systems; (iii) institutional development and public-private dialogue and (iv) project coordination and management.
