Guangxi Integrated Agricultural Development Project
The overall goal of this project is to promote rural development and poverty reduction by scaling up innovative approaches in the target area. Its specific objective is to increase the revenues of rural men and women through improved agricultural production.
The project's four components include community infrastructure development, agricultural production and marketing support, and improvement of the rural environment. More than half of those who will directly benefit from the project are in poor and vulnerable households, and more than half are women.
Among the project's anticipated benefits are increased revenue and food security from the incremental production of about 157,000 metric tons of food grains, fruits and vegetables, root crops, sugar cane and tea. These increases are to be achieved by demonstrating and scaling up niche and cash crops and livestock production, increasing access to information and markets, improving conditions for technical training and extension, and enhancing the effectiveness of technical services. Rural women and ethnic minorities in the project area will thus be empowered economically and socially.
