Project General Description

The proposed study is among the Government’s economic and social development priorities. It should help identify the priority actions with a view to improving the living conditions of the rural populations and to reducing poverty. The implementation of the study should contribute to the achievement of the local development objective of the Agnéby region, namely: increase in agricultural production, fulfilment of the needs of the population, sustainability of the actions initiated and regeneration of natural resources, improvement of the quality of life and the environment. The study should be conducted in three phases. The first phase should consist of a diagnostic assessment of the situation in the Agnéby region and the definition of a coherent and rational overall development policy and strategy. In a second phase, the Regional Rural Development Plan should be developed and at least three projects that contribute to poverty reduction in the region should be proposed. The third phase aims to define, specify and evaluate the specific, technically and economically viable actions in the form of a priority project to be carried out in the perspective of local development.

Project Objectives

The sector objective of the study is a project that will contribute to poverty alleviation in the rural area. The specific objective of the study is to prepare the diagnosis and the rural development plan of the Agnéby region, and to prepare at least three rural development support projects in the region, one of which is a priority.


The beneficiaries of this study are: the Ivorian Government, the local authorities of the Agneby region and, ultimately, the populations.
