National Agricultural Land and Water Management Development Project

 

The goal of this project is to reduce poverty among rural women and young people through improved productivity based on sustainable land and water management practices. The project responds to two major challenges in rural areas of country:

  • Limited productivity and economic carrying capacity of land used for farming
  • Poorly developed domestic markets, which generate very low real demand for the main produce of smallholders.

To address these challenges, the project supports watershed development and agricultural commercialization. And in order to consolidate and scale up the approach taken by ongoing IFAD-financed operations in The Gambia, it is nationwide in scope. The project targets poor smallholders, particularly women, who are the core producers of rice and vegetables throughout the country. A secondary target group is composed of market intermediaries, service providers and operators in the rice and vegetable markets, including producers' organizations and small and medium-sized enterprises.
