Competitive Local Innovations for Small-scale Agriculture Project

Competitive Local Innovations for Small-Scale Agriculture Project (CLISSA)

The project supports market-oriented agricultural activities by seizing opportunities of the agricultural sector and addressing the threats of increased liberalization. The project focuses on strengthening the economic activities of smallholder farmers and fishers by linking them to potential buyers, thus allowing them to compete in markets.

The project's goal is to contribute to equitable and sustainable pro-poor agricultural and rural economic growth and employment. It promotes modern and sustainable agricultural and fishery practices, increases and diversifies market access for smallholder farmers and fishers.

CLISSA has national coverage, with key interventions on the three main islands of La Digue, Mahé and Praslin (the "Inner Islands"), where the large majority of the population is based. It targets approximately:

  • 770 farmers who are producing for the domestic market;
  • 1,330 people dependent on artisanal fishing and fish handling and processing;
  • 7,500 additional households which are involved in some form of small-scale agricultural practices and backyard gardening.
