The Preparation Mechanism for the Rice Value Chain Development Project in the Valley (PDCV Riz) was initiated by the Senegalese Government in order to facilitate the start-up of the PDCV Riz and improve its quality at entry. Indeed, the PDCV aims to contribute to the consolidation of the results obtained by the Programme d'Accélération de la Cadence de l'Agriculture Sénégalaise (PRACAS), namely self-sufficiency in rice by 2017. In addition, the present preparation mechanism should enable the conduct of the necessary preliminary studies to ensure the proper implementation and achievement of the project's objectives.
