Revitalization of agricultural production – Departments of Bambey, Diourbel, Fatick, Mbacké
Market gardenings in the Diourbel region enjoyed a flourishing period and contributed for a long time to supply Dakar’s market. But this production has gradually deteriorated and is now reduced to a few localized sites.
Main constraints are:
- lack of water control and water quality drilling;
- land and vegetation cover degradation, particularly as a result of poor farming practices and actions of water and wind erosion;
- difficult access to production factors (inputs, equipment ...);
- low crop diversification;
- low management rate in this sector;
- lack of professionalism among producers and groups;
- the aging of the rural population.
Due to the dynamic created by the 2014 -2016 pilot phase in the Diourbel area, the actions has been extended.
At the request of various Senegalese communities and because of a new context (new territorial divisions in France and Senegal), the project has expanded in the Fatick region with the same constraints:
- unfavorable productive environment (land degradation, lack of tree cover or hedging, etc.);
- unsafe market gardening perimeters (absence or deteriorated fence);
- basic work equipment (both for rainfed/vegetable crops and for livestock farming);
- poor control of technical itineraries (crops and livestock);
- difficulties to sale market gardening production
General Objective: to fight against structural poverty and food insecurity of populations in Bambey, Diourbel, Fatick and Mbacke Departments.
Specific objective: to secure and sustainably improve the agricultural activities of 350 families living in 6 villages of the 4 departments by strengthening local skills.
Expected results:350 families of beneficiary producers, 10 agricultural organizations, 1 training center supported in the implementation of the educational project, 2 training cycles for Agroecology and Management board conducted for the benefit of technical support services and development actors Budget :€366,000 over 2016-2019 Funding :BNPP, Brageac Foundation, IFAID, Nouvelle Aquitaine Region Project management :Agrisud International Partnerships :Local authorities, IFAID, Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region
Program of Sustainable Management of Limbé’s watershed (PAD-Nord) – North-Haïti
In a context of strong physical degradation and increasing poverty, the goal of this project is to manage and to valorize, on a long-term basis, Limbé’s watershed. It is important to take into account the development of farming sectors and the protection of natural resources (soil, water and biodiversity). Agroecological practices implemented by the families and organizations ensure performance to technical, economic and environmental plans.

Forestry and agroecology in the mountains of northern Laos / districts of Viengkham and Pakxeng – Luang Prabang Province
After a first successful operation between 2009 and 2012, the goal of this project is to keep fighting against the poverty of people living in the mountains in northern Laos. For that purpose, the natural resources have to be rehabilitated, safeguarded and valued (water, soil, biodiversity).
The project will also adapt to climate change and mitigate its consequences (agricultural systems’ resilience, reduction of greenhouse gas emission and carbon sequestration).
Expected results:550 farming families supported in 20 villages of the Viengkham district, among the poorest in the country Budget :€880,000 over 2014-2018 Funding :AFD (French Development Agency), Fund Action Laos sheltered by Swiss Philanthropy Foundation, Fondation Ensemble, PAM, France Volontaires Project management :Agrisud (leader) and Etc Terra Partnerships :Etc Terra, SAEDA (Sustainable Agriculture & Environment Development Association), Université Souphanouvong de Luang Prabang, PAFO (Provincial Agriculture & Forestry Office Luang Prabang), Viengkham District
Agroecological intensification and Diversification of family farming – Siem Reap
Avec la proximité des temples d’Angkor, la croissance touristique de la ville de Siem Reap s’accompagne d’une forte demande en produits frais. Cette demande est satisfaite en grande partie par les importations venant des pays voisins, excluant les petits agriculteurs locaux qui subissent des contraintes multiples.
Les actions visent les petites exploitations familiales et portent sur l’intensification agroécologique et sur l’amélioration de la commercialisation. Ces petites exploitations acquièrent l’autosuffisance alimentaire, obtiennent des revenus réguliers et contribuent à approvisionner les marchés locaux. Le volet commercialisation est particulièrement actif, tiré par une demande croissante pour les produits sains et locaux.
L’organisation en groupement de commercialisation permet aux petits producteurs de se saisir collectivement des opportunités économiques qui leur étaient jusqu’à présent inaccessibles.

Sustainable agriculture and farming supply chain professionalization in Mayombe – Bas-Congo province – Lukula and Tshela territories
The purpose of the project is to fight poverty in rural areas affected by climate change and deforestation.
The food security of the people living in these areas can be improved and local markets can be supplied thanks to a sustainable increase of agricultural production (food crops, coffee, market gardening and small breeding) and with a strong marketing.
Thus there will be a better environmental management of productive spaces.
Expected results:2.300 VSE (Very Small Entreprises) supported, “Petit Kwilu” coffee distribution circuit, environmental management consulting system. Budget :€2,460,000 over 2012-2017 Funding :Agrisud, BNPP, Caritas Foundation, CRAFOD, ERAIFT, European Union, IFAID (Institute for training and support to development initiatives) Project management :AGRISUD.
