Agricultural Value Chains Support Project
- vulnerable small-scale farmers who have limited family labour, small and often degraded land holdings and a narrow range of income sources
- women and girls and their organizations
- underemployed young people aged 18 to 30
Through a grant IFAD will provide funds for technical assistance, supporting value-chain development, knowledge management, monitoring and evaluation, and inclusion and gender equity.
IFAD will directly supervise the project through the Country Presence Office in Dakar, which will facilitate collaboration with other development partners in Senegal. The project will ensure wide access to information and the sharing of knowledge through the FIDAfrique regional network and exchanges with other projects in the region.
