Project Description
The development objective of Third Community Action Program under the Additional Financing for Niger was to strengthen the recipient’s local development planning and implementation capacities, to support the targeted population in improving agriculture productivity, and to respond promptly and effectively to an eligible crisis or emergency. This project has four components. 1) The first component, Capacity Building, aims to put more focus on targeted training and agricultural advisory services needed by small farmers for the implementation of their micro-projects. It has the following two subcomponents: (i) A1 funded entirely by International Development Association (IDA); and (ii) A2 funded entirely by Population and Human Resources Development (PHRD). 2) The second component, Local Investment Fund, will be the centerpiece under the AF and support agriculture-related micro-projects in 125 communes already participating in CAP3. This has the following three subcomponents: (a) Micro-projects related to improved land and water management, including to strengthen climate-resilience, funded entirely by IDA; (b) Micro-projects for income-generating activities; (c) Micro-projects (MPs) in socio-economic infrastructures
