Project General Description

The Project to Support the Productivity and Competitiveness of the Meat and Dairy Value Chains in Chad (PAPCV-VL) is in line with the authorities' vision for the agricultural sector (including livestock) as defined in the Agricultural, Silvicultural, Pastoral and Fisheries Policy Law (LOAH, 2018). The LOAH aims to "build an intensive, diversified and sustainable agriculture that provides healthy and sufficient food, income and secure employment for the rural population in general, and vulnerable groups in particular, and that ensures food and nutrition security, as well as poverty reduction in Chad." The project will support commercial transactions and partnerships throughout the country to ensure permanent and regular supply for slaughterhouses. It will also support private sector operators involved in meat exports. The PAPCV-VL project area covers seven (7) administrative provinces grouped into two zones, namely: (i) the Western Zone which covers Chari Baguirmi and Hadjer Lamis Provinces and N'Djamena Municipality; and (ii) the Southern Zone which covers Logone Occidental, Logone Oriental, Mandoul and Tandjilé Provinces. The project area covers 151,259 km² (12% of the total area of the country) with an estimated population of 7,377,771 inhabitants in 2020, and an average density of 48.77 inhabitants/km². Clearly, the physical infrastructure and capacity building of livestock organisations will be limited to the indicated project area, while commercial transactions and partnerships will be supported throughout the entire territory. The PAPCV-VL, which will be implemented over five years (2021-2026) at a total cost of UA 17.026 million, directly targets 500 processing enterprises and cooperatives, as well as 7,500 beneficiaries (agro-pastoralists and livestock farmers) representing 45,000 people, at least 60% of whom are young people and women.

Project Objectives

PAPCV-VL’s sector objective is to contribute to sustainable increase in the livestock sector’s contribution to the national economy by improving meat and dairy value chains productivity and competitiveness. This sector objective is broken down into four (4) specific objectives, namely: (i) intensify livestock production and productivity; (ii) increase meat exports; (iii) create employment opportunities and increase stakeholder income in the meat and dairy value chains; and (iv) facilitate the population's access to safe food of animal origin.

Beneficiaries

The target groups and direct beneficiaries of the project are all the stakeholders in the beef/meat and dairy value chains (graziers, fatteners, butchers, collectors, livestock traders and other economic operators involved in the sub-sector). The construction and/or rehabilitation of infrastructure for the processing of products and by-products will provide an opportunity for creating income-generating activities for women and young people, thereby contributing to poverty reduction. The organisational and technical capacities of the Government services in the sector will be strengthened to effectively deal with issues that concern them. The project will target approximately 500 processing enterprises and cooperatives, as well as 7,500 beneficiaries (agro-pastoralists and livestock breeders) with 45,000 people of whom at least 60% are young people and women. The indirect beneficiaries are estimated at 120,000 people. Finally, the increase in meat exports will target other stakeholders outside Chad.
