Saving the agricultural campaign in the Central African Republic

Nov 2014

In 2014, FAO established emergency measures to resume agricultural production in the Central African Republic despite the escalation of the conflict and violence in the country. Over 110 000 families received seeds of groundnut, kidney bean, maize, millet, sorghum and rice, allowing them to cultivate about 55 000 ha and produce food for four months.

The distribution operation of food crop seeds was coupled with the distribution of market gardening seeds to 30 000 displaced families and/or returnees, as well as the establishment of a resilience programme for 27 000 farming families and/or youth and women’s groups.
