The present project which is held over a period of five years is relative to Koulikoro Food and Nutrition Security Support Project (PReSAN-KL). This project receives a US $ 37.21 million grant from the Global Agriculture Program and Food Security (GAFSP). It targets six hydro-agricultural sites in the Koulikoro region that have been the subject of participatory diagnoses as well as detailed pre-project studies, in close liaison with the Office of Development of the Upper Niger Valley (OHVN) and the Baguinéda irrigated area office (OPIB). The interventions identified target an increase in agricultural production (10,600 tons of rice and 20,300 tons of market gardening), thanks to a valorisation of surface water, the creation of development poles involving private actors, a better organization of producers, and specific attention to the development of value chains.
The goal of PReSAN-KL is to help improve food security and reduce poverty by about 178,000 people, by targeting women and smallholders as a priority, and relying on better control of water and secure access to land from small irrigated perimeters, landscaped basements and women's vegetable gardens. The project will also help to offset projected production shortfalls in the northern regions of the country affected by the security crisis.
The direct beneficiaries of the project are estimated at nearly 53,000 rural people, half of whom are women. The indirect beneficiaries, estimated through the six main communes concerned by the project, represent about 178,000 people divided among 28,000 households.
