The project aims to improve the living conditions and resilience of smallholder households in the Maradi region through economic development based on the marketing of cereals, market-garden produce and livestock. It is to be implemented in 18 communes in farming and agro-pastoral areas, benefiting 65,000 households, primarily women and young people.
On land and natural resources, the project provides support for the recovery and development of pasture land and natural forests, by developing 4800 ha of watersheds and 4000 ha of pasture and natural forests. It further strengthens community groups dealing with land tenure security, and land commissions (COFO) at departmental, municipal and village level.
