Project General Description

The Agricultural and Rural Sector Rehabilitation Project (PRESAR) covers the North, East and West zones of Guinea Bissau, namely the regions of Oio, Bafata, Gabu, Cacheu and Biombo. The project falls within the framework of the objectives defined by the National Strategy Document for Poverty Reduction (DENARP), and in the Letter of Agricultural Development Policy developed in January 1997, and updated in 2002. It proposes to intensify and increase rice and vegetable production by the rehabilitation of 2,500 ha of lowland rice paddies and mangroves, the development of 200 ha of small market gardening schemes for women, the rehabilitation of farm tracks and storage warehouses, the introduction of improved rice and vegetable seeds, and the use of new farming techniques. The project also proposes to provide support to the MADR regional directorates by training management staff, setting up the necessary equipment, training members of the rice producers' associations, the technical training of vegetable producers, and the installation of necessary equipment. Its execution is spread over a period of 5 years.
