Project General Description

The Piela-Bilanga Rural Development Project aims to improve the standard of living of the area's populations. It’s designed in a context of food shortages and limited opportunities to improve rural incomes. The Government has therefore placed emphasis on the intensification of rainfed crops, the development of agro-pastoral hydraulics and the restoration of agronomic potential. The project plans to continue the Government's actions through the intensification of rainfed and irrigated crops, controlled livestock intensification, agriculture/livestock integration, strengthening of the relevant services, land management and opening up the area. The main components of the project are: (a) development of agricultural production; (b) forestry-pastoral and fisheries development; (c) agricultural credit; (d) rural infrastructure; (e) institutional support; and (f) Sirba-Koempenga study.

Project Objectives

The objective of the project is to improve the standard of living of the populations of the area by: (i) improving their income, (ii) contributing to food self-sufficiency, (iii) modernizing the production system, (iv) providing water to the population, (v) preserving their environment, and (v) opening up the area.


The main beneficiaries of the project are rural populations of the departments of Piela and Bilanga.
