The objective of the Guinea Integrated Agricultural Development Project is to increase agricultural productivity and market access for producers and agricultural small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in selected value chains in project areas. There are four components to the project, the first component being increasing agricultural productivity. The objective of this component is to increase agricultural productivity through climate-smart intensification of selected production systems focusing on enhancing water management and fostering access to improved technologies and innovation. This component comprises two subcomponents: improving water management, and increasing access to technology, innovation, and advisory services. The second component is the increasing market access. The objective of this component is to help producers, small-scale processors, and their organizations to increase the production and commercialization of marketable surplus for the targeted agricultural value chains (rice, maize, potato, egg, and fish). This component includes three subcomponents: strengthening producer organizations, promoting business development services, and financing productive investment projects. The third component is the strengthening institutional capacity. The objective of this component is to strengthen institutional capacity, focusing particularly on agricultural statistics and planning for a rapid response in the case of severe crises and emergencies. This component includes two subcomponents: strengthening the public agricultural statistics system, and contingency emergency response. Finally, the fourth component is the project coordination and implementation. This component aims at ensuring that the project is efficiently managed and monitored, and that performance and outcomes are carefully tracked by the PCIU and the implementing agencies.
