  • Generate and disseminate technology to increase incomes and family food security while also introducing approaches for effective soil and water conservation and environmental management Fostering demand-driven and participatory approaches to agricultural and rural support services

SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAMME:

Location

This programme is always launched in areas of Nigeria where poverty is widespread and whose mainstay is farming, starting with the southwest. The programme targets a large section of the rural population, especially those whose main activities relate to agriculture: women, landless people, nomadic pastoralists, and small-scale farmers or those with only marginal lands. It is designed to empower these groups to participate in development activities.
