Agricultural Rehabilitation and Poverty Reduction Project
This project is designed as a post-crisis intervention to support rehabilitation of the livelihoods of smallholder farmers, which have been weakened by the civil conflict. The project works to restore the productive assets of farmers and farmers' groups, and rehabilitate or build essential infrastructure to support food production, marketing and processing activities.
Through PRAREP, IFAD provides kits containing tools, seeds and other inputs to poor small-scale farmers. At the same time, the West African Development Bank finances activities to rebuild rural infrastructure, improve the access of smallholders to technologies and markets, and improve household food security. The target group comprises the poorest and most vulnerable sectors of the population – particularly women, young people and those affected by the war. The project covers three administrative districts in the north-east: Bandama Valley, Savanes and Zanzan.
