The Water Valorization for Value Chain Development Project (PROVALE-CV) in Senegal is the first operation under the National Small-Scale Local Irrigation Development Programme (PNDIL) prepared with the Bank's support. PROVALE-CV will cover three agroecological areas: Niayes, the Groundnut Basin and Casamance, i.e. eight (8) administrative regions: Kaolack, Fatick, Kaffrine, Diourbel, Thiès, Ziguinchor, Sédhiou and Kolda. The project aims to provide a concrete response to key development problems by valorization of water to develop climate-smart agriculture and promote value chains in promising sectors, particularly rice and market gardening. It will also help to open up production areas, reduce production costs through the use of new technologies, build the capacity of actors, create rural entrepreneurship opportunities for young people and protect the environment. Scheduled to be implemented over five years (November 2019-October 2024), PROVALE-CV has three components: (A) Modernise and develop agricultural infrastructure; (B) Developing value chains and youth entrepreneurship in agriculture; and (C) Project Management.
PROVALE-CV's sector objective is to contribute to robust, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, and to improve the quality of life for rural communities. The project specifically aims to sustainably increase agricultural production, employment and income in rural areas.
The beneficiaries of the project are the populations of the project area. In particular, it will benefit the various rural producers (farmers, stockbreeders, aquaculturists, craftsmen, etc.), who would thus have easier access to inputs and equipment and could more easily sell their products at lower costs. More specifically, the Project's interventions will focus on two target categories, particularly vulnerable in rural areas, women and rural youth.
