Project General Description

The Rural Infrastructure and Participatory Development Support Project, Phase II (Grassfield II) will be implemented in the North-West Region of Cameroon. This operation is a sequel to an initial project (2005-2011), which had significant results and a positive impact on the income of the beneficiary communities. However, the Government has sought to consolidate the project achievements due to the persistence of basic needs and the size of the intervention area in relation to the resources allocated. Consequently, and as a continuation of the project’s first phase, this operation will be implemented in those basins with strong production potential, namely Widikum, Santah/Tubah, Gayama and Mbaw/Mbonso covering 8 of the region’s 36 council areas, with a concentration on the first two to maximize the impacts. This new operation will help to improve agricultural production and the income of the beneficiary communities by creating rural infrastructure and building the capacity of the actors. The estimated outputs are: (a) irrigation development (ID) on 610 ha; (b) rehabilitation of 278 km of rural roads; and (c) establishment of socio-economic support facilities and capacity building for the different partners. The project’s total cost is estimated at UA 25.600 million. It will be implemented over five years from April 2014.

Project Objectives

The project’s overall objective is to help to reduce poverty in the rural communities within its intervention area. Its specific objective is to improve agricultural production and income of beneficiary communities by creating rural infrastructure and building the actors’ capacity.

Beneficiaries

The project will have over 250,000 direct beneficiaries half of whom are women in 50,000 households plus transporters and traders. In addition, it will help to build the capacity of cooperatives, agricultural professional associations and regional and local technical administrations.
