The PIDACC is of paramount importance for populations living in the area and the economies of the member countries of the Niger Basin Authority (NBA),” the Bank Group Agriculture Research, Production & Sustainability Division Manager, Patrick Agboma said.

The activities include recovery of 140,000 ha of degraded land; construction of 209 water conveyance infrastructure for agro-pastoral systems and fish farming; leveraging on the livestock and aquaculture compacts of the Technologies for African Agriculture Transformation (TAAT). The program will also touch on implementing 450 agricultural value chain development sub-projects; building climate change adaptation capacity for 1,000,000 households and operationalize a financing mechanism for natural resource management.

Expectations of the program are high and include increased production through 280 million m3 of agricultural water harnessed per annum; Additional crop, fish and meat production (575,000; 9,000; and 6,000 metric tons, respectively) and Climate change adaptation enhanced for 500,000 women and young people having access to reclaimed land.

PIDACC-BN is in line with three of the Bank's High5 priorities – Feed Africa; Integrate Africa; and Improve livelihoods of the population. It also fulfils the Bank's climate change mitigation agenda.
