Project General Description

The proposed operation consists of an ADF grant of UA 9 million, a TSF grant of UA 2.71 million and a TSF loan of UA 3.29 million to the Republic of Madagascar to finance the nationwide Emergency Food Production Enhancement Project in Madagascar (Pro-PAM). It is a two-year investment project covering the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 crop seasons. The project is in response to a request by the Government of Madagascar, dated 9 June 2022. The Emergency Project is aligned with the African Emergency Food Production Facility (AEFPF) established by the Bank in response to the impact of the Russia-Ukraine crisis on food systems in Africa. It will support activities to strengthen the seed system, the provision of fertilizers (organic and synthetic) to strengthen production and increase access to food. The project will be implemented through three components: (i) Strengthening of agricultural production; (ii) Strengthening of food production; and (iii) Project coordination and management.

Project Objectives

The overall objective of the project is to increase the production of cereals and oilseeds in order to strengthen food security in Madagascar. The project’s specific objectives are: (i) to improve agricultural productivity and production of cereals and oilseeds; and (ii) to increase quality food production. In terms of supporting the production, substitution the project will work on four commodity chains, including rice, the number one staple food of the people of Madagascar, which has been prioritised by MINAE in order to achieve food self-sufficiency by 2023; wheat, which will be used for the production of flour and wheat bran, with the help of the two flour mills that are currently in operation but still entirely dependent on imported wheat; and soybeans and groundnuts, for the production of cooking oil and oilcake.

Beneficiaries

The beneficiaries are essentially the agricultural populations of the following regions: Amoron'i Mania, Menabe Vakinankaratra. Melaky, Alaotra Mangoro, Boeny, Sofia, Sava, Diana, Atsinanana, Analanjirofo, Analamanga, Haute Matsiatra, Ihorombe, Betsiboka, Androy, Anosy, Atsimo Andrefana.
