Project General Description

The Animal Productions Development Project in the south Kayes area will contribute to bolster efforts at addressing the different shortcomings, promoting intensive livestock rearing systems adapted to the context of the intervention area and combating rural poverty, by focusing on vulnerable groups, especially women and youth. The project, which will be implemented over a six-year period, concerns the agropastoral area of South-Kayes (Kenieba, Bafoulabe, Kita circles and the southern part of the Kayes circle). The implementation of the project will contribute to the development of animal production (cattle, sheep/goats, poultry) through health coverage, enhanced advisory support and an improvement of traditional livestock systems. It will also ensure a better management of agro-silvopastoral space, in particular transhumance routes, through the development of infrastructure and the putting in place of consultative mechanisms. The main components of the project are: (A) improvement of the animal production system, (B) production and marketing infrastructure, and (C) project management. The total cost of the project excluding taxes and customs duties is estimated at CFAF 14.2 billion, equivalent to UA 18.92 million.

Project Objectives

The sector goal of the project is to contribute to increasing food security and poverty alleviation. The specific objective is to contribute to increasing in a sustainable manner, animal production and the incomes of agro-stock breeders in the South-Kayes area.


In general, over 54,000 farms, 10,300 of which are owned by women, will benefit from the project, representing an estimated population of 570,000 persons. The additional production generated annually by the project will amount to 1,700 tonnes of meat and 2 million litres of milk.
