Project General Description

The proposed operation is an AfDB loan not exceeding EUR 151,184 millions to the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire to finance the Emergency Food Production Programme under the African Emergency Food Production Facility (2PAU-CI/AEFPF). The programme goal is to cushion the impact of exogenous shocks and strengthen the country’s food sovereignty. It comprises three components: (i) Improving Access to Certified Seeds and Advisory Support; (ii) Improving Access to Fertilizers; (iii) Improving Governance and Implementation of Agricultural Sector Public Policies. The main expected outcomes are a 30% increase in food production by (i) establishing a digital platform for the supply of climate-resilient seeds and quality fertilizers as well as extension and agro-climate information services; (ii) financing the supply of inputs (fertilizers and improved seeds); and (iii) strengthening the institutional framework of agricultural input quality control services.

Project Objectives

The programme aims to strengthen the country’s food sovereignty by reducing its dependence on imports of staple cereals and starchy food products. The specific programme objective is to reduce the country’s dependence on imports of staple cereals (rice and maize) in the short and medium term and to boost cassava production.


The programme will benefit approximately 800,000 smallholder farmers (of which at least 30% are women), including rural and vulnerable populations, youth, aggregators, distributors and sellers of agricultural inputs.
