Description
The development objective of the Emergency Agriculture Production Support Project for Chad is to support communities and producer organizations in increasing (i) the production of selected crops and livestock species in selected areas of the recipient’s territory ; and (ii) the use of sustainable land and water management practices in climate vulnerable ecosystems. This emergency project paper seeks the approval of the Executive Directors to provide an International Development Association (IDA) credit in the amount of US$25.00 million, a Global Environmental Fund (GEF) grant in the amount of US$4,629,629 and a Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF) grant in the amount of US$4,629,629 to the project. The credit and grants will help finance the costs associated with addressing food insecurity in the country, which has worsened appreciably in recent months following two years of below-normal agricultural production. The resources will allow the World Bank to respond quickly and directly to the emergency appeal issued in December 2011 by the Republic of Chad. In 2010, a prolonged drought led to widespread crop failures and the loss of large numbers of livestock. In 2011, the delayed onset of the rainy season and significantly below normal precipitation levels led to a steep reduction in planted area and caused production of cereals to fall by nearly 40 percent and production of other food crops to fall by approximately 28 percent. The impacts have been felt most acutely in Sahelian zones, where food production fell by an estimated 56 percent during the recently concluded cropping season, compared to the previous year. The Project will focus on high-potential zones in which significant productivity and production increases are deemed possible or in which food security and poverty challenges are high. In Guera and Salamat, there is considerable potential for increasing production of sorghum, maize, millet, and rain fed rice.
