Project to Improve the Resilience of Agricultural Systems in Chad
PARSAT will intervene in the four departments of the Guéra region and the departments of Fitri (Batha region) and Dababa (Hadjer-Lamis region).
The target group consists of vulnerable farming households dependent on food crop production (60 per cent of it cereals) carried out on an average area of 2 to 3 hectares, small livestock and supplementary off-season activities, including market gardening, which is a resilience activity highly prized by rural inhabitants.
The project will involve approximately 35,000 households, i.e. some 175,000 direct beneficiaries (40 per cent of whom are women and 30 per cent young people). The households directly benefiting from the project constitute roughly 25 per cent of the rural sedentary households in the intervention zone.
PARSAT’s overall objective is to contribute to the sustainable improvement of the food security and incomes of rural households in the project zone. Its development objective is to improve the resilience of the agricultural systems and the economy of rural households to climate change and external shocks.
