To support the strategic objective 3 of the joint programme and more specifically the pillar on reinsertion, reintegration and economic recovery of the international strategy for security and stability.

Key partners:

International and national Non-governmental Organizations as well as the Provincial agriculture, fishery and livestock inspection.

Beneficiaries reached:

500 vulnerable women/girls and 2 500 households.

Activities implemented:
  • Conducted a baseline mission to collect socioeconomic data on households, food diversity, food insecurity and food consumption.
  • Established the technical specification of the market gardening and small livestock components of the interventions.
  • Distributed vegetable seeds and tools (hoes, rakes, sprayers, watering cans, etc.), and set up three nurseries in Mambasa, Epulu and Nia Nia to produce around 200 000 kg of vegetables.
  • Set up two nurseries in Mambasa for palm oil production; distributed 4 720 pre-germinated palm nut seeds; and trained two technicians to ensure monitoring of transplanting of palm seedlings.
  • Procured and distributed 300 goats.
  • Trained 25 farmer field school (FFS) trainers and set up 22 FFS.
  • Trained 200 people on the use of improved ovens and charcoal production techniques; build 474 improved ovens; and conducted an awareness campaign in each site to sensitize the population on the use of improved ovens.
  • Distributed 25 tonnes of haricot bean seeds and 5 000 hoes.
  • Provided support for quality seed multiplication.
  • Contributed to restructure 55 farmers’ associations and provided support in order to obtain official recognition from the political and administrative authorities.
  • Trained 30 people on fish farming techniques and built ten ponds.
Impact:
  • Increased vegetable production by 300 percent ‒ an average of 330 kg of vegetables per household was obtained, of which 180 kg was consumed and 150 kg was sold allowing each beneficiary to generate USD 26.2 per week.
  • Increased capital linked to livestock activities (an average of USD 1 200 per year), allowing vulnerable women and girls to diversify and increase their income.
  • Generated a revenue of USD 325 through the sale of improved ovens.
  • Cultivated 393 ha of land and produced 279 tonnes of haricot beans.
  • Obtained an estimated production of 32 tonnes of seeds of groundnut, haricot bean, maize and rice thanks to the implementation of seed multiplication activities.
  • Obtained official recognition by the political and administrative authorities of 91 percent of associations supported by the project.
  • Ensured sustainability of project activities, contributing to strengthening the resilience of beneficiaries.
