Smallholders Cotton Rehabilitation Project

Smallholders Cotton Rehabilitation Project

The main objective of the project was to provide the basis for re-establishing commercial cotton production, with emphasis on full participation of smallholders in disadvantaged areas that were traditionallyimportant cotton-producing areas. The project worked to reduce poverty by supporting:

  • cotton developing, by breeding, seed multiplication, improved production practices and the introduction of integrated pest management
  • animal traction, by developing appropriate technologies and support services to restore the use of animals in cultivation
  • savings and credit, by developing credit lines so farmers can take advantage of development opportunities offered by the project
  • institutional strengthening, by assisting the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries, enabling it to manage all new projects
