Support to Agricultural Production and Marketing Project
- Rehabilitation, development and sustainability of productive infrastructure
- Post-harvest activities (storage, processing and marketing)
- Strengthening the organizational, functional and economic capacity of producer organizations.
PROPACOM supports the development of selected value chains in the food and horticulture sectors as the primary means of creating wealth, improving rural incomes and reinforcing the food security of smallholder producers. It intervenes in three regions: Bandama Valley, Savanes and Zanzana.
The project's priority target group is composed of rural people who are living in poverty or facing food insecurity but are able to take advantage of economic opportunities. Within this group, the focus is on women and girls, young rural producers, unemployed young people and ex-combatants who are demobilized, disarmed and interested in working and investing in the agricultural sector. Grassroots and apex producer organizations serve as an initial entry point for project intervention, which is aimed at strengthening their structures and enabling them to provide needed economic services to their members.
PROPACOM shares a project coordinating unit with the Agricultural Rehabilitation and Poverty Reduction Project. A new intervention is being designed to extend this project to the west and north-west regions.
