Strengthening Productivity and Resilience of Agropastoral family Farms Project
Chad is both a least developed country and a low-income food-deficit country. It faces recurring droughts, combined with poor (rainfed) farming practices that are highly vulnerable to climate change. Falling oil prices have also contributed to the decline of economic growth. However, the country’s agricultural sector, although underperforming, offers real development opportunities for small holder farmers, the principal agricultural producers.
The Strengthening Productivity and Resilience of Agropastoral Family Farms Project (known as RePER) supports the Government’s National Development Plan towards the modernization of the agriculture sector, the diversification of the country's economy and the improvement of quality of life. Agricultural potential can be tapped by improvements in productivity that support food security, nutrition and resilience, while also fostering the development of emerging agropastoral value chains.
Among the activities aimed at sustainably increasing food and nutrition security and the income of rural households, the project will strengthen agricultural water infrastructure, rehabilitate rural roads, intensify and diversify family farming production systems, and support value addition for agropastoral products.
RePER will be implemented in Chad's Sahel region, mainly in the Guéra, Batha, Hadjer Lamis, Chari Baguirmi and Salamat regions. It will complement the activities of the ongoing Project to Improve the Resilience of Agricultural Systems in Chad, and extend activities to four new administrative areas. It is estimated that 146,000 households will benefit from RePER.
