The Emergency Agricultural Production Project (PRAUPA) is selected as part of the rebuilding of socio-economic fabric much of which was destroyed during the 1994 genocide. This tragic event had a highly negative impact on the agricultural sector (losses in food production estimated at 75% of the productive potential). The Project was identified as one of the priority projects of the reconciliation and socio-economic rehabilitation programme. It consists of 3 components: i) Rehabilitation of irrigation schemes and development of pilot Marshland areas; ii) Support to the Directorate of Rural Engineering and Soil Conservation (DGRCS) in the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock; iii) Research and Development and Training. The project is expected to rehabilitate the Bugarama (1600 ha) and Rwamagana (950 ha) irrigation schemes to enable rice farmers to double crop annually to achieve incremental production of milled rice of 3,300 tons at full development; enhance the capacity of the Ministry of Agriculture and the two cooperatives; establish input credit guarantee fund and upscale technology testing and transfer.
The objectives are to increase the production of milled rice so that 80% of the national requirement is met from the benefits of the project by 2001; and also to enhance the capacity of rice producers and other stakeholders.
The project intended beneficiaries are rice producers in the Bugarama and Rwamagana irrigation schemes and the MOA. The aim is to increase local rice production to meet a significant proportion (80%) of national rice requirements.
