(Ecofin Agency) - In Madagascar, 2,800 land deeds were issued to farmers of Andriambilany, in the central region, in the framework of the project for Agricultural growth and improvement of land tenure (CASEF), News Mada reported.

“Valued at $53 million which were secured through a loan from World Bank, CASEF has been implemented in various parts of the country in the past year. In the Andriambilany community (in the Vakinankaratra region), the project led to the issuance of 2,800 land titles in May and June”, the website indicates.

Launched in September 2016, the CASEF project aims at facilitating transition from subsitence farming to market-oriented farming in the country. A transition which depends greatly on securing land rights of rural populations.
