The Value Chains Development Project in Indénié-Djuablin Region (PDC-ID) was designed because of, not only the high level of poverty, but also the need to consolidate the gains of the current Agricultural Infrastructure Support Project in Indénié-Djuablin Region (PAIA-ID) activities in order to enhance the sustainability of the project’s impact and trigger a new impetus driven by the private sector and geared towards agribusiness. Therefore, the intervention is urgently needed to help create an enabling framework for the development of an agropole in the Eastern Region. The project will also provide institutional support for actors of value chains and establish frameworks for exchange and cooperation between all actors of a value chain. Its total cost is estimated at UA 4.8 million. The project’s main deliverables are as follows: Support for the production of high-quality seeds, drilling of 30 market gardening wells and installation of irrigation equipment for an area of 50 ha, procurement of 100 tricycles, 20 lorries and 10 tractors, building of 32 km of farm-to-market roads, procurement of 60 farm produce processing units, 4 cold storage units, support to secure land tenure rights over produce-processing sites, training/formation of youth and women’s groups, installation of 7 modern honey-extraction units, establishment of platforms for the rice, banana, maize and vegetable sub-sectors, assistance in the preparation of microprojects, and establishment of a fund for the development of the various sub-sectors. It will have two components: (i) value chain development; and (ii) project management.


The project's sector goal is to contribute to food and nutrition security, and create shared wealth. Its specific objective is to increase the income of actors of the selected value chains.

Target Groups

The project beneficiaries are actors of the targeted value chains organized in groups or cooperatives, and private operators with SME status. The project will directly benefit 9 750 beneficiaries, 80% of them women (heads of seed production farms, processing units, beekeeping units, transport facilities), representing about 20 400 people in total (including family members) and about 13 000 indirect beneficiaries (farmers benefiting from high-yield seeds, cuttings and seedlings of cassava, and yam, and farmers benefiting from processing units). The project will indirectly benefit about 50 000 persons (including those impacted by farm-to-market roads).
