Lusa - Business News - Sao Tome: UN, government sign agricultural programme of €19.2M




Roma, Feb. 13, 2020 (Lusa) – The United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the government of Sao Tome and Principe on Thursday signed a programme estimated at €19.2 million, aimed at helping at least 34,800 farmers.
The financing agreement for the Commercialisation Project, Agricultural Production Nutrition (COMPRAN) was signed on Thursday in Rome by Sao Tome’s minister of finance, Osvaldo Vaz, and Donal Brown, IFAD vice president for programme management.
The €19.2 million-programme will be mainly aimed at young people, who will be at least 50% of beneficiaries, and will contribute to the development of livelihoods, improved nutrition and resilience, critical areas for the country to achieve food security, according to a statement issued by IFAD.
The programme's funding includes a €3.8 million grant from IFAD, a €900,000 loan, a €400,000 contribution from the government of Sao Tome and Principe and €500,000 from the beneficiaries themselves. Other development partners, not identified, take the bulk of the co-financing.
"COMPRAN will strengthen the capacities of the main rural public and private institutions in the country to catalyse and manage investments and strengthen public-private and producer partnerships, both at central and decentralised levels," the communiqué said.
"It will ensure the continuity and sustainability of the gains obtained by the previous Small Farmers Commercial Agriculture Project, which had enormous success for its impact on the subsistence of rural populations through increased incomes," said Emime Ndihokubwayo, national director in IFAD for Sao Tome and Principe, quoted in the same document.
The programme is designed to promote the economic inclusion of small producers in the value chains of agriculture, livestock and fisheries and includes measures to mitigate climate change, particularly in the areas of irrigation and agroforestry.
The project will invest in post-harvest infrastructure and technologies to minimise food loss. Rural infrastructure will be built "to support market-oriented production and enable the efficient delivery of surplus production from small farms to markets, allowing farming families to sell more and improve their livelihoods," the communiqué announces.
The project, to be implemented nationwide, will finance 35 cooperative business plans, promote 1,500 micro-projects for food and nutrition security and income-generating activities, and support 700 initiatives by young microenterprises.
Other activities include the preparation or updating of the land registry to identify abandoned land so that it can be distributed to women, youths or people with disabilities who can be included in productive agricultural activities.
