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.
