Description
The project has three (3) components : A. improved infrastructure for food security which comprises 3 sub-components (a) marketing infrastructure and agro-processing, (b) improved irrigation infrastructure, (c) rural roads ; B. Promotion of Farm Diversification, and C. Project Management.

Objectifs
Poverty reduction and climate resilience through enhanced agricultural productivity and value addition.

Bénéfices _The project aims at promoting agricultural production through enabling resource poor communities to improve their land productivity, agro-processing and development of more areas. At least 60% the irrigated scheme is occupied by women, which will be the primary beneficiaries of the project. About 5000 farm families will directly and indirectly benefit from the project. Rice and vegetables productivity is expected to reach 6,000 and 2,400 tons annually. The project provision of machinery for land preparation under irrigation will improve productivity. The Project will also introduce threshing machines which will make rice processing much easier for women. These machines will be provided to farmer groups to ensure affordability resulting from shared cost. Technical support and training in the use of these technologies will also be organized by the extension services under BLRD. In addition, strengthening the existing dike separating the scheme from the Limpopo River will reduce the risk of coastal storms and sea water rise on the Irrigation Scheme.
