A new €81.9 million project funded by IFAD and partners will help more than 1 million vulnerable small-scale farmers in Chad. This will help farmers adapt to climate change
The Strengthening Productivity and Resilience of Agropastoral Family Farms Project (RePER) includes €49.3 million grant and €5.3 million loan from IFAD, as well as cofinancing from the Green Climate Fund grant (€17.1 million), the Government of Chad (€7.6 million) and by the beneficiaries themselves (€2.6 million).
RePER will raise the performance and resilience of agropastoral family farms by strengthening agricultural water infrastructure; rehabilitating rural feeder roads; intensifying and diversifying family farming production systems; supporting value addition for agropastoral products; improving nutrition; improving adult literacy; supporting farmers’ organizations and improving access to financial services.
The new project also supports the Government’s National Development Plan towards the modernization of the agriculture sector, the diversification of the country’s economy and the improvement of people’s quality of life.
