The PADAP project is a boon for the main actors working in the field of agriculture. It will also benefit farmers and Agricultural Service Centres (CSA).

PADAP project: support for agriculture

As a first step, the PADAP project will help farmers to become familiar with new agricultural technologies so that they can increase productivity and better cope with climate change.

The PADAP project will then provide technical assistance to strengthen trade links between market players, the CSA network and the various value chain organisations for vanilla, clove, ginger, rice and other marketable products.

The PADAP project specialists will provide training on the technical and logistical aspects of post-harvest aggregation and quality control. The goal of this initiative is to increase the capacity of local farmers to meet industry demands and improve their position in the supply chain.

Through a partnership with the private sector, the PADAP project will be able to lend a hand in the rehabilitation and construction of agricultural storage facilities and product processing units.

Agricultural Service Centres: key institutions for the PADAP project

The Agricultural Service Centres (CSA) play an important role in the PADAP project. On the ground, the APF could potentially help producers balance production and market needs.

The CSA, with technical and financial assistance from PADAP, hopes to improve productivity in the selected landscapes. In particular, the centres are planning to introduce new, more diversified crops while promoting climate-friendly agricultural technology.

The APF will therefore ensure that farmers are able to master good practices in sample production of improved quality products. Other activities aimed at consolidating technical skills in the field of product grouping for the market will also be carried out.
