Project General Description

The Belier Region Agro-Industrial Pole Project (2PAI Belier) is part of the dialogue with the Government of Côte d’Ivoire to transform the agricultural sector, using an innovative approach. It aims to set up the base of an agro-industrial pole to transform and modernize agriculture in the Bélier region, through the restoration and development of productive capital, the modernization of the means of work, soil and communication (ICT), and the promotion of the private sector and industrialization. The cost of the project is estimated at UA 97 million. It comprises three components, namely: (i) restoration of productive capital; (ii) development of value chains; and (iii) project management. The first component aims to endow the region with key infrastructure for the development of agricultural and agro-industrial activities. The second component aims to support all actors for them to operate dynamically around value chains in a more integrative and inclusive environment. The last component will ensure that the project is managed according to schedule and through sound implementation and monitoring arrangements.

The project’s sector objective is to contribute to food and nutritional security. The specific objective is to contribute to the emergence of an agro-industrial pole in Bélier Region by revitalizing promising agricultural sub-sectors (rice, maize, cassava, vegetables, pork and fish) and further involving the private sector, youth and women.


The project will benefit 461,600 people (64% of project area residents), 112,000 of them directly, 800 young graduates and 200 SMEs (including 50 in produce processing). It will benefit about 230,000 women, including 4,300 farmers, 400 young girls and 25 processingoperators and traders.
