National Programme for Food Security and Rural Development in Imbo and Moso


The National programme for Food Security and Rural Development in Burundi will strengthen food security and rural development in the regions of Imbo and Moso. It will contribute to:

  • reinforce hydro-agricultural infrastructure in the marshland and plains providing access to production areas
  • develop and organize the rice and dairy value chains
  • support the diversification of production and improve the nutritional conditions 
  • build institutional capacity among those in the agricultural sector who are engaged in rice and diary value chains.

The programme will reach out to and benefit 225,000 rural people. It is estimate that 50 per cent of the beneficiaries will be women and 30 per cent young people, in particular, young orphans. 

The programme will help create jobs at husking units, mini mills and in milk collection centres. By the end of this six-year programme, it is expected that the:

  • development and rehabilitation of 2,470 hectares of marshland and plains will increase rice production to nearly 5,000 tonnes per year
  • distribution of dairy cows and heifers will increase the quantity of milk for self-consumption, processing and marketing by 17,500 litres per year respectively.
