Project General Description

The Local Development Support Project for Comoe, Leraba and Kenedougou Provinces is part of the National Land Management Programme (PNGT). It designed because of the need to reduce poverty, strengthen food security, and improve the living environment of the populations of these three provinces, the authorities affirmed their determination to consolidate and pursue the measures taken under the previous projects. This project is inspired by the new rural development policy. The strategy retained is based on grassroots local development, adopts a participatory approach and prioritizes self-development and accountability of the local population. It should comprise the rehabilitation of the cereals, legume, oilseed and fruit subsectors, as well as the building of management capacity at the level of village communities, producers, AOs, and their professionalization. This will lead to a considerable increase in production which will be able to secure additional income for the population, help to reduce poverty, which is prevalent in the project area, and strengthen food security. The main project components are as follows: A) Improvement of farming systems; B) Capacity building and professionalization; C) Project Management.

Specifically, the project aims at strengthening the food security of the population by increasing production by 40%. The expected major project outcomes are as follows: the integrated management of soil fertility, the development of 77 100 ha of cereals, 1 620 ha of vegetable crops, 410 ha of yams, 5 730 ha of groundnuts, 600 ha of lowland rice and 24 290 ha of fruit trees, capacity building and professionalization of 409 village communities (200 CVGTs and CIVGTs), local authorities, 280 AOs and 15 200 producers, and the establishment of a Rural Development Fund (FDL) of UA 3.77 million to support community initiatives.


The project is interested in all populations of the three provinces: socio-occupational groups (farmers, craftsmen, etc.), private operators, and decentralized State employees. It also draws on the experience of ongoing projects in Burkina Faso and elsewhere.
