Project details


Program for competitiveness and agricultural diversification




6 years


$5.7 million CAD


Through this project we have contributed to boosting the productivity and competitiveness of farming operations and rural processing. We worked with farmers for a better mastery of and access to irrigation techniques, intensification and added value, and the creation of interprofessional structures for dairy, onion, shallot, fish and livestock networks.

Socodevi - Femmes cultivatrices

Studies on onions/shallots, dairy and fish were undertaken in order to identify and prioritize actions to support farmers in the region. Existing techniques for different crops were adapted and tested to respond to the needs of the market. We supported the dissemination of low cost, simple and adapted techniques and technologies to improve the production, productivity, processing and commercialization of agricultural products with high added value.

Farmers were supported in the acquisition and use of irrigation technologies and equipment, crop intensification and post-harvest processes such as storage, the cold chain, processing and packaging.
