Improvement of Dryland Livelihoods in Djibouti and Somalia through Productivity Enhancing Technologies

Djibouti

THE OPEC FUND FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Titre : Improvement of Dryland Livelihoods in Djibouti and Somalia through Productivity Enhancing Technologies

Pays : Djibouti

Secteur  : Agriculture

Date d’approbation : 07.07.2017

Description
The project’s main development objective is to improve the livelihoods of pastoralist and agro-pastoralist communities by increasing productivity through the adoption of improved technologies for farming and the sustainable management of water, watersheds, rangelands, and small ruminants. The proposed OFID contribution will be partially financing the delivery of various technology packages and capacity development activities. The objectives are to : (i) deliver technological packages to increase and stabilize the productivity of sorghum/maize based rainfed production systems and of fruits/vegetables irrigated based agriculture farming systems ; (ii) deliver technological packages to increase and stabilize the productivity of rangelands and small ruminants ; (iii) demonstrate and promote efficient watershed management technologies ; and (iv) improve the capacities of national research and extension staff to provide support services to pastoralists, agro-pastoralists and irrigation farmers. The project target group comprises 51,330 rural households (43,000 in Somaliland and 8,330 in Djibouti). In Somaliland, these households benefited from the IFAD/BFFS grant-funded NWICDP II and the associated IFAD/OFID grant-funded Food Security for Pastoralists II Programme (FSPP), both of which closed in September 2015. In Djibouti the target group includes 8,330 households that benefited from the IFAD-financed PROMES-GDT which closed in June 2015 and up scaled under the "Programme de gestion des eaux et des sols –PROGRES" (scheduled for completion on 30 June 2024), and the 2,000 households that benefited from the Somalia FSPP. The direct beneficiaries of the project comprise 5,190 households in “Somaliland” and 1,445 households in Djibouti. New Technology Dissemination Platforms (TDPs) shall be formed within existing community-based organizations. Women shall be fully mainstreamed within activities, 1,100 of whom shall be engaged in income-generating activities.
