Climate Change Adaptation and Agribusiness Support Programme in the Savannah Belt (Nigeria)

Nigeria

Climate Change Adaptation and Agribusiness Support Programme in the Savannah Belt (Nigeria)

Pays : Nigeria

Durée : 2013 - 2019

Institution initiatrice : International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)

Emprunteur : Federal Republic of Nigeria

Organisme d’exécution : Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD)

Zone d’intervention et Groupes cibles

The CASP will be implemented in the seven states of Borno, Jigawa, Katsina, Kebbi, Sokoto, Yobe and Zamfara, which constitute the Savannah Belt of Nigeria. Specifically, it will be implemented in 104 local government areas (LGAs), 69 of which participated in CBARDP and an additional 35 new LGAs, which is roughly 50 per cent of the total number of LGAs in these seven states. ASAP activities will focus on building climate resilience in the climate hotspots identified through the climate change vulnerability analysis.
The priority target group will be moderately poor and core poor households, who represent over 90 per cent of the population of the target states.2 The core poor are characterized by low disposable income, little capital to invest in agriculture, food insecurity, vulnerability to climate change and with small farms (of less than 2 hectares). The moderately poor share most of these characteristics but have moderate disposable income, cultivated land of over 2 hectares and produce to sell. As most rural households in the belt fall into these categories, geographic targeting as well as direct targeting measures that ensure inclusion of rural women and youth will be applied

Objectifs

The overall goal of the CASP is to reduce rural poverty, increase food security and accelerate economic growth on a sustainable basis.3 The programme development objective is to increase incomes, enhance food security and reduce vulnerability for smallholder farmers, particularly women and youth, and create jobs in the participating states.
