The project is part of the MLI / 021 sectoral program, whose objective is to diversify and sustainably strengthen agricultural income sources and household food security in rural areas. This program aims more specifically to develop and intensify the productivity, sustainability and profitability of three agricultural sectors, namely the rice, fonio and sesame sectors. In this perspective, four distinct results are
- Emerging fields of sesame and fonio are developed;
- The food security of rural households is improved, particularly through the development of the rice sector;
- Areas of intervention and agricultural value chains are better adapted to climate change;
- The investment and work environment of the entrepreneurial fabric is improved.
This program also strives to support and strengthen local actors and state services, both at the national level and at the local level (Region, Circles and Communes).
