Integrated Rural Development Project/Ngozi III

Integrated Rural Development Project/Ngozi III

The project was implemented throughout the province of Ngozi, known for the highest population density in the country. About 90 per cent of the 150,000 smallholders’ families participating in the project had incomes below the poverty line.

The six-year project helped farmers increase the production of food crops and coffee. Fifteen new coffee washing stations were built to raise the quality of Burundi’s processed coffee and to make coffee more competitive on the international market. The programme also included reforestation, erosion control and the building of water wells and roads, as well as development of swamps for dry-season farming.
