The present intervention concerns the Decentralised Rural Development Support Project in the Provinces of Gnagna and Kourittenga (PADER-GK). It’s in line with the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper, the National Food Security Strategy and the Rural Development Strategy. It will contribute to improving food security through the development and utilisation of insufficiently tapped water potentials notably by developing small-scale irrigation, which has had significant impact on poverty reduction. The project will enable beneficiary producers to increase their net yields while implementing a farming method which does not degrade soil fertility. It will subsequently increase production by about 10,500 tons of food products (rice, sorghum, millet, corn) and 2,400 tons of vegetables. The key components of the Project are: (A) Rural Infrastructure, (B) Local Capacity Building, and (C) Project Management.
The Project’s sectoral objectives (PADER-GK) are to contribute to the country’s food security while its specific objectives are to increase agricultural production and improve the living conditions of the rural populations.
The Project’s beneficiary target groups are the rural populations of different departments in which the Project will intervene, and more precisely those of villages with an irrigation potential. A total of about 140,000 people will benefit directly or indirectly from the Project and 50% of these are women. In the irrigation sector, the Project will directly benefit some 5,500 farms, i.e. 35000 people. The project essentially targets the following beneficiaries: (i) women; (ii) young farmers; (iii) experienced farmers; and (iv) livestock breeders many of whom are transhumant.
