Programme de Productivité Agricole en Afrique de l'Ouest ( PPAAO 1C )


Agriculture continues to play a major role in the economy of the countries of West Africa, contributing more than 40 percent to its GDP and providing income and employment to about 70 percent of the region’s population. Therefore, the performance of the sector is important to the economic growth and development of the majority of the ECOWAS countries. In order to significantly reduce poverty in the region, an annual GDP growth rate of at least 8 to 10% is required to be sustained in the countries of the region. Based on this background, the CAADP framework projected the need for agriculture growth to attain at least a 6% rate. Attaining this growth requires substantial increases in technology generation and use; and strengthened linkages between research systems, extension and advisory services to farmers and agribusinesses

Objectif général

Farmers will benefit from improved crop varieties and livestock breeds. Agribusinesses will benefit from advanced innovations in agricultural product handling and processing technologies. National and regional research institutions will benefit from state of the art research infrastructure. Consumers will have value for money on agriculture products. Policy makers will benefit from robust scientific research results for decision-taking.

Résultats attendus

Agriculture in countries of the West Africa region are expected to be more regionally integrated, with improved sharing of technologies, and research infrastructure
