General

The Project in Support of the Agricultural Sector and in Response to the Food Crisis in Chad (PASARCA) was designed to boost local cereal production as the most effective and efficient means of building the resilience of food systems in Chad to address the food crisis and mitigate the short- and medium-term supply risks. This is a Transition Support Facility (TSF) Grant of UA 3,000,00. This grant, prepared under the African Emergency Food Production Mechanism (AEFPF), will be implemented by PROPAD (Climate-Resilient Agriculture and Productivity Enhancement Project) over a 17-month period from August 2022. The project is focused on two components: (i) Intensification of agricultural production; (ii) Coordination and Management.

Objectives

The project’s overall objective is to contribute to the improvement of food security and build the resilience of poor and vulnerable households by increasing agricultural production in Chad. The specific objective is to provide agricultural inputs (certified seeds of climate resilient-varieties and fertiliser) to about 18,000 smallholders, 60% of whom will be women and young people in the provinces of Mandoul, Moyen Chari and Salamat.

Target Groups

The project's main benefits are (i) About 18,000 smallholders in Mandoul, Moyen Chari and Salamat have increased cereal production by at least 30% and; (ii) Sustainable land management technologies are developed and adopted by targeted producers.
