Partnerships for Irrigation and Commercialisation of Smallholder Agriculture Project
PICSA will contribute to efforts to achieve the goal of attaining enhanced livelihoods and climate resiliencies and sustainability. Its development objective, which is to be attained by beneficiary communities using project outputs, is the achievement of sustainable and inclusive local economic development.
The project will have the following components: (i) intensified agricultural development; (ii) value chain development; and (iii) improved nutritional practices
PICSA and SRIWMSP share an initial focus on 15 targeted irrigation schemes in 12 districts. These schemes will serve as a springboard for linking services and markets to adjacent areas. PICSA supports the roughly 90 villages associated with the 15 SRIWMSP schemes and will expand its coverage to similar villages in other districts, bringing the total number of districts and villages to be supported to 19 and 353, respectively. This includes remote villages inhabited by different ethnic groups.
