Project General Description

The Dosso Department Rural Development Support Project (PADER-D) is a synthesis of three (3) initial project fiches relating to the department but presented separately to ADF financing by the Ministry of Planning; these are the following projects: (i) Development of the soils of North Dosso; (ii) Support for the agricultural development of Dosso; (iii) Recovery of soil fertility in North Dosso. The project proposes strong measures to protect the environment and soil fertility, which will be applied on a pilot basis at some 15 sites, as well as actions to intensify crop and animal production in order to contribute to achieving food self-sufficiency, a constant concern of the government. The proposed action programme to achieve these objectives includes interventions in the following areas: protection of natural resources, livestock farming, socio-economic infrastructure, institutional support and agricultural credit. In the northern part of the department, where the problem of degradation of natural resources is acute, the project proposes actions to protect and rehabilitate the land, as well as securing it through agroforestry and various methods of land reclamation involving 8,000 ha of cultivation.

Project Objectives

The project proposes to: (i) restore, improve and stabilize the agro-ecological balance in the terroirs with the active participation of the populations; (ii) increase agro-sylvo-pastoral production and thus improve the income and living conditions of the populations concerned.


The project will contribute to improving the productivity of 5,000 farmers, 4,000 agropastoralists and 3,000 herders in the medium term. Its benefits will also affect the 10,000 to 15,000 inhabitants of the sites chosen for the protection and rehabilitation of the land. It is estimated that a total of 12,500 families, or about 100,000 people (10% of the department), will be affected.
