Project Information

This project was aimed at strengthening the population’s agricultural produce in order to restore the economic cycle, source of employment and livelihood opportunities, and thus reduce the population’s vulnerability and improve food safety. To achieve this, the following project activities were implemented:

  • Provision of 75 boats and 225 nets specially suited to local fishing techniques in order to revive the intermediary fishing sector
  • Rehabilitation dikes to protect 500 hectares of cultivable land in 50 villages; this activity will provide waged jobs to 156 people per day and area
  • Provision of baby shrimps to restore fish farming
  • Provision of 250 water buffalos and rototillers to prepare the land and restore rice cultures
  • Provision of spare parts for the rototillers and organise mechanical engineering training in each village
  • Provision of rice seed for 5000 acres and fuel for the rototiller (land preparation mostly involves water buffalos)
  • Diversification of revenues at family level
  • Provision of 1000 pigs to vulnerable households to revive livestock breeding at family level
  • Provision of 4000 family gardening kits (tools and seeds) to enable cultivation of 2 acres per family.
