The Agricultural Values Development Project in Cabinda Province (CPAVCDP) was designed to enhance investments in agricultural processing through value chains of agricultural products to diversify exports, reduce imports through value chains, increase domestic revenue sources and reduce dependency on oil. It provides for the development of production, conservation, storage, processing and marketing infrastructure in a number of agricultural value chains: food crops (cassava, banana, sweet potato, groundnuts and beans); industrial crops (coffee, cocoa and oil palm); marine and inland fisheries; small ruminants; and horticulture (vegetables and fruits). The project also includes the renovation of water supply structures for irrigation, the training of value chain actors in technical and managerial skills, the introduction of mechanization for land preparation, support for adaptive research and improvement of agricultural extension services. It will allow the rehabilitation or construction of rural infrastructure, such as access roads connecting production areas to markets, agro-processing centers, trading centers, community health centers, primary schools and community drinking water facilities, while facilitating access to energy in rural areas. The CPAVCDP project has three components, including: (i) development of agricultural value chains; (ii) infrastructure development; and (iii) project management, monitoring and evaluation.
The project's development objective is to contribute to strengthening food and nutrition security, job creation and wealth production. More specifically, the project aims to increase food and nutrition security and farmers' incomes through increased agricultural production and value addition. In addition, it will contribute to the sustainable development of the income of small and medium-sized enterprises involved in the supply of inputs and the production, processing, storage and marketing of a number of products.
The direct beneficiaries will be the 51,000 economically active small-scale farmers living in the rural areas of the four municipalities, who already participate in or are encouraged to participate in agriculture. Indirect beneficiaries will include 15 associations of small, medium and large contractors providing services to producers and processors. This number is expected to increase significantly as other economically active entrepreneurs in value chains join the project. The project activities will specifically target at least 50% of the beneficiaries (women) to benefit from it.
