Project General Description

This intervention concerns the study for the preparation of an agro-industrial pole in the northwest region of Côte d'Ivoire. The project should rehabilitate the main production infrastructures (agricultural, halieutic and animal) and will reinforce the capacities of the actors in order to put in place the conditions for the emergence of a competitive and prosperous private sector. It will also aim at a better articulation between crop, livestock and fisheries production, the development of intensive maize and yam production, the professionalization of small ruminant breeding and market garden production as well as the organization and structuring of actors into cooperative societies. In addition, the project will help strengthen ongoing private sector initiatives in the value chain of crop, animal and fishery production. The project is fully aligned with the following four pillars of the NDP 2021-2025: i) structural transformation of the economy through industrialization and cluster development; ii) development of human capital and promotion of employment; iii) development of the private sector and investment; iv) balanced regional development, preservation of the environment and the fight against climate change.

Project Objectives

The sectoral objective of the project is to contribute to increasing food and nutritional security and to promote the development of agricultural value chains with high economic potential in the intervention zone. The specific objectives are to contribute to: (i) the emergence of an agro-industrial processing pole in the North-East of Côte d'Ivoire through the revitalization of promising, gender-sensitive and resilient agricultural sectors; (ii) the promotion and increase of private investment; and (iii) the involvement of other actors (youth and women) in wealth creation by providing leverage for private initiatives and strengthening economic development incubators.


The main beneficiaries of this study are the Ivorian government and the municipal authorities of the regions concerned by the project.
