Resilience and Food Security for women through Production, Productivity and Markets in Mauritania (2P2M)


Titre : Resilience and Food Security for women through Production, Productivity and Markets in Mauritania (2P2M)

Pays : Mauritanie
Date/Durée : Actual start 2023/02/03 // Planned End2023/12/31

Since 2017, by adopting the Strategy for Accelerated Growth and Shared Prosperity (SCAPP 2016-2020), Mauritania has undertaken a major adjustment of public policies to revive its growth. In response to the requests of the member states of the G5 Sahel and Senegal, IFAD and other UN agencies are developing the regional Joint Program in response to the challenges of COVID 19, Conflict and Climate Change (SD3C), which involves the five G5 countries Sahel and Senegal. The 2P2M initiative is part of this regional program. The initiative, with the achievement of the 2 proposed expected results, aims to strengthen the resilience of the most vulnerable rural populations in the Sahel region in a sustainable way to mitigate the COVID-19 crisis, conflicts and the effects of climate change, based on the main technical-operational problems identified. In particular, 1. lack of agricultural hydraulic structures suitable for the various agro-ecological areas and/or adapted to the needs of livestock mobility ; 2. impoverishment and fragility of soils exposed to water and wind erosion, overgrazing, silting, etc . ; 3. poor access to appropriate agricultural techniques, technologies for the enhancement of ecosystems, animal nutrition and veterinary services ; 4. inadequate agro-pastoral and pastoral technical assistance ; 5. poor structuring and management of professional organizations.

By 2030, ensure that all men and women, in particular the poor and the vulnerable, have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services, ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology and financial services, including microfinance
By 2030, build the resilience of the poor and those in vulnerable situations and reduce their exposure and vulnerability to climate-related extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks and disasters
By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment
By 2030, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality
Increase investment, including through enhanced international cooperation, in rural infrastructure, agricultural research and extension services, technology development and plant and livestock gene banks in order to enhance agricultural productive capacity in developing countries, in particular least developed countries
Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life
Enhance the use of enabling technology, in particular information and communications technology, to promote the empowerment of women
