Community Agricultural Infrastructure Improvement Programme

Community Agricultural Infrastructure Improvement Programme

This programme builds on experience gained under the shortly-to-be-closed Area-Based Agricultural Modernization Programme, and aims at reducing the isolation of poor rural communities and improving their access to markets and services. It supports the Government’s sectoral approach to decentralization and agriculture, and is in line with the Ministry of Local Government’s Sector Investment Plan.

The programme aims to improve producers’ access to markets, invest in rural infrastructure to encourage competitive prices, and support the sustainable management of infrastructure. IFAD financing will enable communities to take initiatives such as rehabilitating and maintaining district and community access roads, building market places, developing agroprocessing facilities and providing electric power to market centres. In December 2009, the Executive Board approved a supplementary IFAD loan of US$17 million for this programme. The programme is directly supervised by IFAD.
