Project General Description

The proposed Agriculture Sector Rehabilitation Project covers 30 districts located in the four Western and four South-Eastern counties of Liberia. The project is expected to restore the capacity of Liberia’s agricultural sector and therewith enhance the sector’s contribution to GDP, increase food security, and farmer’s incomes. It will be implemented in six years under three components: Agriculture Infrastructure Rehabilitation; Agricultural Production and Productivity Improvement; and Project Management. The project total cost is estimated at UA18.3 million. In line with past successful co-financing experiences with IFAD, and taking into account the strategic focus of both institutions, the Bank will essentially finance infrastructure rehabilitation and development works while IFAD financing will cover production activities and capacity building for relevant sector institutions.

Project Objectives

The overall goal of the project is to contribute to food security and poverty reduction. Its specific objective is to increase the income of smallholder farmers and rural entrepreneurs including women on a sustainable basis.


The project will directly benefit an estimated 9,610 households in the 8 counties. These comprise 5,900 small farm households benefiting from increased income accruing from enhanced agricultural production and processing, and the production of certified rice seed in addition to 2,360 households who will benefit from employment in land clearing activities for women-headed households. The household income is expected to increase by 300% on successful completion of the project.
