Project General Description

This feasibility study for the development of agro-industrial parks falls within the framework of implementation of the recommendations of the high-level conference organized by the African Development Bank in Dakar on agricultural transformation in Africa. It also aligns with Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)’s priorities of transforming agriculture from a subsistence sector into a real driving force for the development of the entire Congolese economy. This study will conduct technical, financial, environmental and social feasibility studies, as well as prepare the business model for the establishment of three new agro-industrial parks in the country’s centre region. It total cost is estimated at UA 1 524 582 (USD 2 149 661), net of taxes and customs duties. The study will, for each of the parks, comprise two components, especially: (i) diagnosis phase and pre-feasibility studies that will lead to the preparation of a development master plan, including a strategic environmental and social assessment (SESA) for each agro-industrial park; (ii) detailed technical, economic and financial study phase, including environmental and social impact assessments of core infrastructure and the development of a research programme.

Project Objectives

The sector goal of the study is to contribute to reducing the incidence of poverty and food insecurity, as well as to the growth of the agricultural sector in DRC. The project objective is to contribute to improving the enabling environment for agricultural sector investments through feasibility studies for Ngandajika, Kaniama Kasese and Mweka agro-industrial parks.
