Project General Description

The Bas Mangoky Perimeter Extension Project (PEPBM) is located in the Bas Mangoky perimeter located 240 km north of the Atsimo Andrefana Region. Its implementation will contribute to the improvement of the food security which will have to be translated by the reduction of the index of the hunger of at least 20 in 2019 against 25,4 in 2014. The area to be developed is at the West current developments. This extension zone is currently free of any occupation, with the exception of a few small parcels of negligible areas developed by some residents. The two facilities are separated by Kitombo which is the former bed of the Mangoky River. The expected effects of its implementation are the increase in yield of rice and cape pea, which is expected to be translated mainly by an additional production of 44 000 tonnes of paddy in the Bas Mangoky perimeter. The project is articulated around three components: (i) development of hydroagricultural development that includes all the development work to be done in the extension zone; (ii) enhancement of managed parcels, capacity building and institutional support broken down into eight components encompassing all complementary activities directly affecting Project beneficiaries; (C) Project coordination and management which revolves around cross-cutting activities related to project management and coordination.

Project Objectives

The general objective of the project is to contribute to the reduction of poverty and food insecurity of the rural populations of the South West Region of Madagascar. The specific objectives of the project are the sustainable improvement of agricultural production and the increase of producers' income through improved productivity, access to markets and services.


The Project will directly benefit producers through the increase in their average annual income estimated at 1,500,000 MGA, which will be estimated at 3,614,650 MGA from 2020.
