This project is part of
The Value Chains Development Project in Indénié-Djuablin Region (PDC-ID) was designed because of, not only the high level of poverty, but also the need to consolidate the gains of the current Agricultural Infrastructure Support Project in Indénié-Djuablin Region (PAIA-ID) activities in order to enhance the sustainability of the project’s impact and trigger a new impetus driven by the private sector and geared towards agribusiness. Therefore, the intervention is urgently needed to help create an enabling framework for the development of an agropole in the Eastern Region. The project will also provide institutional support for actors of value chains and establish frameworks for exchange and cooperation between all actors of a value chain. Its total cost is estimated at UA 4.8 million. The project’s main deliverables are as follows: Support for the production of high-quality seeds, drilling of 30 market gardening wells and installation of irrigation equipment for an area of 50 ha, procurement of 100 tricycles, 20 lorries and 10 tractors, building of 32 km of farm-to-market roads, procurement of 60 farm produce processing units, 4 cold storage units, support to secure land tenure rights over produce-processing sites, training/formation of youth and women’s groups, installation of 7 modern honey-extraction units, establishment of platforms for the rice, banana, maize and vegetable sub-sectors, assistance in the preparation of microprojects, and establishment of a fund for the development of the various sub-sectors.
