Second Agricultural Rehabilitation Project

Second Agricultural Rehabilitation Project

Mozambique was still emerging from the effects of a prolonged drought and civil conflict at the time the project was implemented. The project was financed by IFAD under the Special Programme for Sub-Saharan African Countries affected by Drought and Desertification. It identified areas with a favourable climate, good production potential and ease of access, and with a high density of smallholder farmers. The total project area covered about one third of the country’s territory and included many fishing communities spread over a large part of Mozambique ’s coastline. The main objective was to support the government’s poverty reduction drive by reversing the decline in production and restoring a minimum level of consumption and income for rural smallholders and their households. Assistance was provided to farmers and fishers to help realize production potential. Project activities included:

  • supplying tools and materials such as seeds to smallholders
  • providing material and equipment to poor fishing communities
  • developing institutions to support smallholder farmers
