Promotion of sustainable peri-urban agriculture in 5 pilot towns — Abidjan

Historically, Abidjan’s urban and periurban agriculture has always been dynamic. However, it is facing some challenges. The low soil fertility, the depletion and pollution of water resources and the rise of parasites pressure are jeopardizing farming activities that could create income for thousands of families.

This pilot project’s goal is to reinforce the agroecological skills of 25 farming technicians from 15 Ivory professional organizations and NGOs. It supports the creation of a network uniting 90 pilot market gardeners.

They will be able to spread practices and systems to 500 other farmers in Abidjan’s 10 different production sites in 5 towns.

benin

Cotonou and Abidjan suffer from unhealthy intra-urban areas and are having trouble developing sustainably. Therefore, the goal is to enhance the municipal teams’ and their partners’ know-how on urban planning so they can apply it to two pilot locations in each city. The methods and tools used are capitalized and transferred to other municipal teams in Benin, Ivory Coast and the sub-region.
