Agriculture & rural development

We support sustainable family agriculture, to improve food security and contribute to inclusive economic growth.

What we do

Sustainable agriculture

We assist small businesses and their organisations involved in the production, processing and marketing of agricultural products. We help with the development of the services and infrastructures for farming, and we pay particular attention to women entrepreneurs. We support them to obtain durable access to the market and to increase their revenues by developing fair and solid trade relations between players.

Food security

We help the most vulnerable households, especially women, in increasing and securing their productions and incomes sustainably to protect them in times of crisis and to ensure the permanent availability of food at affordable prices. We assist the local authorities in setting up systems for better monitoring and prevention of food insecurity and better access to the production factors (irrigated lands, inputs, equipment, advice, etc.), the marketplace and storage facilities.

Good governance

We also aim to improve the ability of national and local players to prepare and implement inclusive agricultural policies. Our actions target the Technical Ministries whose duty it is to ensure public service delivery and also local authorities that play a significant role in coordinating and supplying public services. Lastly, we target the farmer organisations to participate actively in the sector dialogue and defend the interests of small producers. We ensure that women are involved in decision-making at all levels.

Management of natural resources

We facilitate good management of natural resources and their importance to local economic development. We assist local authorities, communities and their organisations in introducing community-based natural resource management systems, which produce lasting economic benefits at the same time. We support the creation of a favourable environment for good governance of natural resources at all levels.
