The Infrastructure Rehabilitation for Food Security Support Project – Project II (PRIASA II), which is scheduled to last for five years, benefits from an ADF loan of UA 11.5 million and a GEF/LDCF grant of USD 3.5 million. PRIASA II seeks to improve food and nutritional security in Sao Tomé and Principe (STP) by increasing the supply and value of agricultural and fishery products throughout the year. The project, with NGO support, will closely involve the farmers, fishermen and communities on the islands of Sao Tomé and Principe. Apart from basic infrastructure (roads, irrigation networks, markets, etc.), the project will disseminate new techniques on quality improvement, conservation, processing and marketing of produce. These activities will be accompanied by capacity building to develop the national expertise crucial to the management of these innovations from all perspectives (technical, health, legislative, etc.).
The sector objective of the project is to contribute to robust and shared economic growth as well as food and nutrition security in STP. The specific objective is to sustainably boost production, productivity as well as agricultural and fishery sector incomes.
The beneficiary communities targeted by the project are those of STP, representing almost 190,000, including approximately 7,500 on the island of Principe. More directly, the project will affect close to 16,000 farmers and 3,000 fishermen and wholesale fish vendors (40% women) who will benefit from suitable infrastructure, capacity building and increased incomes. Over 200 employees from technical and administrative services, one third of whom are women, will also benefit from targeted technical training so that they can acquire the knowledge crucial to the introduction of new technologies.
