It is expected that a total of 425,000 smallholder farmers will benefit from this component.

This component is expected to benefit 400,000 smallholder farmers (50% women), including 225,000 beneficiaries supported under component 1 (exact number of beneficiaries to be discussed during project preparation and following the selection criteria specified in paragraph 23) as well as 175,000 direct beneficiaries who graduated from MOSAP2.
Component 3: Project Management and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) (US$ 30 million, of which US$ 15 million IBRD and US$ 15 million AFD): The objectives of this component are to (i) ensure an efficient project management, which will include efficient and targeted use of project resources in accordance with the project’s objectives, procedures, and fiduciary guidelines and efficient contract management among others; and (ii) building the project M&E system capable to inform about the project progress and achievements, support management decision making and course correction with timely and quality data and reporting.
