The proposed intervention is a support to the Nigeria National Programme for Food Security (NPFS) in three States with high agricultural and food production potential. The NPFS program is strongly linked to the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD), as Nigeria is one of the core countries in Africa that defined the NEPAD framework following the Millennium Declaration. The implementation of the NPFS programme, to which this project is contributing, is particularly important for the achievement of critical Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Nigeria, particularly the goals of eradicating extreme poverty and hunger. The project will finance the development of 18 new sites out of the 218 sites targeted by the NPFS Programme, and provide additional support to the 9 existing ones in the three states. Activities at the sites will also promote opportunities created by the NFSP during the pilot phase to increase the participation of women, and to enhance their leading role in key agricultural activities particularly agro-processing, food production and income diversification opportunities that to improve food security. It will be for five years and consists of the following four components: A) Community Development, B) Land and Water Development, C) Production Enhancement and Diversification, and D) Project Management.
In line with the NPFS programme, the sector goal of the ‘NPFS Support Project’ is to improve national and household food security and reduce rural poverty on a sustainable basis. The objective is to increase agricultural output and the incomes of rural households and beneficiary communities.
The direct beneficiaries of the project would be 11,550 households, which represents 80,850 of rural people of which about 50 percent are women.
