Project General Description

The Agriculture Sector Study (ASS) was designed because of the lack of reliable information on the potential and constraints suffering from the Congolese agricultural and rural sector, making it difficult to properly formulate a coherent, medium- and long term agricultural development plan, as well as strategies to achieve it. The proposed study should update the basic data of the different sub-sectors, and prepare agricultural land use capability maps to allow for rational planning of future interventions based on reliable information. It should deepen the strategic analyses made during preparation of previous planning documents. The study should also help to clarify previous medium and long-term priority interventions in the agricultural and rural sector, as well as identify and assess the feasibility of priority development actions that will be presented according to theme. Based on the results of the surveys, existing documentation and strategic analysis of the sector, an Agricultural Sector Development Master Plan (ASDMP), including annexes for agriculture, livestock, fisheries, aquaculture and the environment, and a National Priority Agricultural Sector Rehabilitation and Development Program (NASRDP) will be prepared.

Project Objectives

The sector goal of the study is to contribute to the improvement of food security in the country. Specifically, the study aims at preparing a medium and long-term Agriculture Sector Development Master Plan (ASDMP) and a National Agricultural Sector Rehabilitation and Development Program (NASRDP) comprising priority actions to be implemented by sub-sector and by Department to boost financing of the sector with the support of donors.


The beneficiaries of the project are the Congolese State and the populations of the twelve departments covered by the project.
