Project General Description

The present project is relative to the preparation of the Bukanga Lonzo Agro-Industrial Park support project (PAPAI-BL). Indeed, the Agro-Industrial Park of Bukanga Lonzo covers an area of 80 000 ha and is located in the province of Bandundu, 240 km south-east of Kinshasa. The park support project is being implemented as part of a public-private partnership with a South African agro-industrial group. Until October 2016, 5,000 ha were under cultivation and the crops grown were mainly maize, soybean and beans in highly mechanized precision farming without tillage.

Project Objectives

The present project should allow Bukanga Lonzo Agro-Industrial Park to: i) plan and manage the area; ii) build basic infrastructure; iii) provide general services (Water, Electricity, Security); iv) regulate the access and activities of operators; (v) mentoring and supporting small farmers and the social development of local communities.

Beneficiaries

The main beneficiaries are the population, especially young people, because the project will create 17,000 indirect jobs and more than 5,000 direct jobs. Small producers within the park will also benefit from the project through support. In addition, household income will be improved.
