This project is the "Kasserine" component of the Integrated Agricultural Development Program which covers the three governorates of Gabes, Gafsa and Kasserine. Indeed, this program comprises three (3) integrated agricultural development projects in Gabès, Gafsa and Kasserine. It falls under the priority actions of the Government in the area of water and soil preservation and protection. The programme is essentially to carry out development works aimed at preserving the quality of soil and enhancing the reconstitution of water tables, and improving water management. In this vein, the programme will undertake the implementation of the following: (i) protect and manage the natural resources in a rational manner ; (ii) improve agriculture and livestock production; (iii) enhance the creation and strengthening of local organisations; and (iv) integrate the women and the youth in the local organisation and develop the non agriculture activities. These developments will help to recover new fertile lands for agriculture and livestock breeding, and of which about 60% will be developed by the farmers. The total cost of the Project in Kasserine is estimated at TD 41.44 million, or UA 23.88 million, net of tax and duties.
The sector objective of the programme is to alleviate poverty and check regional imbalance. In this vein, the specific objective of each project is to increase sustainably, the production and income of the farmers in those areas, thereby contributing to the improvement of the living conditions of beneficiaries.
The beneficiaries will be the rural folks living in the areas where CES development and infrastructures are being installed. More specifically, the Kasserine project will give priority to farmers who own developed lands with irrigation infrastructure, and then, those who carry out irrigated tree-planting whose lands are being threatened by erosion. Income-earning activities for the women and the youth will also be developed. About 770 farms (2,350 people) or 5.6% of the present rural households of the Governorates will benefit from the project.
