Approuvé le : 31 December 2003

Submitting ICB  : FAO Intergovernmental Sub-Group on Hides and Skins

Agence d’exécution : UNIDO, in collaboration with l’Office Malien du Betail et de la Viande (OMBEVI)

The project aims to improve the quality and image of African raw hides and skins through the introduction of an incentive scheme for primary producers so that they can improve the grading and quality of hides and skins. The project seeks to introduce an incentive based buying system linked to quality and grades instead of the currently operated buying system that is based on quantity.

The specific objectives are : (a) to introduce a pricing system which is based on quality grades ; (b) to design and implement a system of quality marking and certification of the raw hides and skins under which hides and skins are graded and traded according to the established quality standards ; (c) to set up the marketing system of hides and skins which is linked to the international trading system, including through web-based trading ; (d) to provide Technical Assistance to support the setting up of the field grading system and to gain access to markets

Coût du projet : USD 2,242,925
