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 objective is to contribute to enhancing food security and increase small farmer income. Specifically, this means (i) improving the income and building the food and nutrition security of small farmers, through water management, increased productivity sustainable development of plant and animal productions, (ii) provide private sector development opportunities, in line with investment plans to support national efforts for medium- and long-term response to COVID-19 and resilience to climate change.

The project area covers three administrative regions (Louga, Matam and Kaffrine) and two divisions (Nioro and Koumpentoum) in the administrative regions of Kaolack and Tambacounda, respectively. It covers 40% of the national territory, with a population of about 3.2 million, or 18% of the country’s total population.
The project will have a direct impact on 31 000 households, i.e., about 310 000 people. These include 7 000 farm households (lowlands, market gardening areas, fodder areas, and new or existing farms to be rehabilitated), 4 000 households, members of savings for change (EPC) groups, 19 000 stockbreeding households that will be organised and supported, and will benefit from livestock support infrastructure, and 1 000 households directly concerned by agricultural and livestock income-generating activities.
The project will benefit 15 000 women (household heads) and 6 000 young people (household heads), i.e.,21 000 women and young people (68% of the target population).
The project will indirectly benefit all the 3.2 million inhabitants of the five administrative units covered by the project, through the impact of transformative activities and investments. The availability of food, development of feeder roads and livestock infrastructure, as well as better access to drinking water, will contribute to improving the living conditions of the population in neighbouring villages. Project activities will target vulnerable groups (young people, women, household heads, the poor, and people with disabilities), through a participatory and inclusive approach to selecting beneficiaries. Positive discrimination will also be sought for beneficiaries who have not benefited from economic initiatives in the agro-pastoral sector under PASA/LMK.

PRESAN-PC will be managed by the Ministry of Agriculture, which, with its new name, Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Equipment and Food Sovereignty (MAERSA), is now prioritising food sovereignty over food security. MAERSA was established by Decree No. 2022-1777 relating to the distribution of government services and control of public establishments, national corporations and public companies between the Presidency of the Republic, the Prime Minister’s Office and ministries.
The aim is to improve agricultural production, storage, processing, marketing and consumption systems.
