CEI N° 07-2022


The Africa Food Security Leadership Dialogue (AFSLD), held in Kigali in August 2019, set out a vision for a more resilient African food system. To help make this vision a reality, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel (CILSS) and the West and Central Council for Agricultural Research and Development (CORAF) is launching a food security program (FSRP) in the context of climate change in West Africa under the financial facilitation of the World Bank.

The program will fund investments in three mutually reinforcing thematic areas: (1) Digital advisory services for agricultural and food crisis prevention and management; (2) sustainability and adaptive capacity of the food system’s productive base (sustainable land and watershed management, agro-ecological approaches); and (3) Market Integration and Trade (Regional Staple Food Value Chain Development).

CORAF will be responsible for coordinating the implementation of the component on the sustainability and adaptive capacity of the food system’s productive base. For this reason, CORAF will benefit from a grant from the IDA regional fund and this requires the development of an Implementation Manual focused on component 2 of the Program.
