Project Detail

Proposed Development Objective(s) The Project Development Objective (PDO) is “to increase agriculture productivity and access to markets for small and medium farmers and agri-food small and medium enterprises in the Participating Project Regions.” Component 1: Improving the quality of agriculture support services and policies (US$42 million equivalent from IDA) 40. The objective of this component is to increase the productivity of agriculture for both crop production and sedentary livestock systems, including aquaculture and fisheries, and to improve the safety of food products, by strengthening agriculture support services and policies. This component will strengthen human and institutional capacity for service delivery and policy development for key actors in the sector. Key outcomes would include (i) improved access to, and delivery of, quality extension and advisory services; (ii) improved access to, and delivery of, quality veterinary and phytosanitary services; and (iii) improved policy and regulatory environment conducive to the development of the sector. All extension and advisory activities are designed to integrate climate-smart agriculture options, as a way to increase producer’s awareness of climate risks, and to improve their capacity to mainstream climate adaptation and mitigation actions. This component will be implemented by MAGEL, by the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development for fisheries and aquaculture-related activities, and in collaboration with the Agence de Promotion du Conseil Agricole (APCA) for Subcomponent 1.1. 41. Subcomponent 1.1: Strengthening crop and livestock extension services (US$7 million equivalent from IDA). The objective of the subcomponent is to build capacity of the national extension and advisory service to more effectively play its role in increasing producers knowledge and capacities. The subcomponent will support the implementation of the strategy for the National Extension and Advisory Services System in agriculture (Système National de Conseil Agricole, SNCA) endorsed by the Government of Niger in August 2017. The project will provide targeted support to the operationalization of the APCA, the operational coordinating and programming body of the SNCA, and to advisory services providers. Delivery mechanisms will be adapted for each production system at the regional level. When a region is designated as conflict-affected where government services have difficulty in access, credible service providers will be subcontracted to deliver services. Training of advisory service providers will focus on the use of CSA varieties and practices, including inter alia introducing drought and heat tolerant seeds, agroforestry practices, drip irrigation, and solar-pump irrigation schemes. 42. Subcomponent 1.2: Support to veterinary and phytosanitary services (US$28 million equivalent from IDA). The objective of the subcomponent is to increase the availability of, and access to, specialized high-quality public and private veterinary and phytosanitary services to producers, and other value chain actors, in order to contribute to crop and animal productivity enhancement, to mitigate increased plant and animal disease risks linked to climate change and to strengthen food quality and safety. The project will support activities aimed at (i) enhancing surveillance systems for emerging and re-emerging crop priority diseases; (ii) controlling priority crop diseases and pests; (iii) controlling priority productivity-impacting livestock diseases; (iv) preventing major fish diseases (especially Tilapia Lake Virus) through targeted surveillance and awareness campaigns with respect to live fish imports; and (v) the promotion of food safety through enhanced quality control of inputs, feed, and food products. 43. Subcomponent 1.3: Strengthening the policy, legal, and regulatory framework and developing mechanisms for preventing and responding to severe crises and emergencies in the agriculture sector (US$7 million equivalent from IDA). Under this subcomponent, the project will support the transformation and the strengthening of the effectiveness and efficiency of the Agricultural Policy Support Unit (APSU) of MAGEL. There is already in the Studies and Planning Directorate a small unit which will be transformed by Ministerial Order (Arrêté Ministériel) into the APSU. The project will provide support to the unit to develop its analytical and policy reform competencies. As women’s economic empowerment is a determinant of agricultural productivity enhancement, the APSU will lead the development of a Gender Policy and gender-sensitive planning and budgeting for the ministry. The project will support the APSU in undertaking policy analyses and making recommendations for removing policy, regulatory, and institutional constraints that negatively affect investments and entrepreneurship in the agri-food sector. 44. This subcomponent will also: (i) support MAGEL’s capacity to respond to crises by providing equipment, training and resources for specialized studies and communication campaigns; (ii) support the consolidation and operationalization of crisis prevention and management tools related to agriculture; and support training to better understand climate change risks, analyze climate information, and integrate climate adaptation and mitigation practices into agricultural programs. Component 2: Increasing investments in agricultural production, processing, and market access (US$45 million equivalent from IDA) 45. The objective of this component is to increase private investments by the various players in the agri-food sector in agricultural production, processing and market access. To this end, the project will support (i) the development of productive partnerships,21 (ii) improvement of access to finance for the agri-food sector, including at the level of production, processing, storage, transportation, and marketing both for domestic and export markets, and (iii) the strengthening of the supply of agriculture credit. The component will be implemented by MAGEL, in collaboration with the PFIs, the National Selection Committee, and the Ministry of Finance. 46. The principles of intervention under this component will be: (i) synergy with other World Bank and IFC projects; (ii) focus on agri-food value chains in the project areas that offer the best economic opportunities at the national and international levels; (iii) focus on women and youth; and (iv) integration into investments of the climate adaptation and mitigation options promoted under Component 1. 47. Subcomponent 2.1: Developing Productive Partnerships (US$6 million equivalent from IDA). To improve access to markets and value chain coordination, the project will finance (i) the establishment of a productive partnership program for producers and SMEs in agri-food value chains presenting good economic opportunities; and (ii) communication and financial literacy campaigns. The project will: (a) finance the following set of activities for the establishment of the productive partnership program: (i) the identification of off-takers for agriculture, livestock, and aquaculture products with good prospects at the national, regional, and potentially international level; (ii) support producers and SMEs to enter into commercial agreements with those off-takers; (iii) build the capacities of those producers and SMEs to respond to the demand of these off-takers and to improve the quality of their production; (iv) develop sustainable business models and business plans that could allow sustainable growth of those SMEs and producers association involved in productive partnerships (for commercial farming, processing and commercialization); and (v) providing technical support services to implement the business plans. These activities will be implemented by different firms specialized in the agri-food sector, business development services, and incubators at the national, regional or international level. Those firms will be selected through a competitive bidding process. Beneficiaries’ selection will be done through a call for proposals (see annex 2 for details). The Project Implementation Manual (PIM) will provide the details of the productive partnership program; and (b) finance (i) communication campaigns; (ii) financial literacy programs; and (iii) training of trainers in financial management/literacy in the project regions. This will be done through specialized firms with proven expertise in these different areas. 48. Subcomponent 2.2: Increasing Access to Finance (US$28 million equivalent from IDA). To address the limited availability of finance in the agri-food sector, the project will support the establishment of a cost-sharing financing (CSF) program based on matching grants and systematic involvement of financial institutions. The CSF will allow producers, producer groups, and SMEs in the agri-food sector, that have benefitted from the productive partnership program, or that have other pre-identified off-takers or markets, to access financing for working capital and viable medium-term investments. Investments will be systematically accompanied by technical assistance to improve the beneficiaries management and technical skills as described under subcomponent 2.1. 49. Two types of grants will be provided under the CSF program under Window #1 and Window #2 (see below) to facilitate access to finance to increase investment in the agri-food sector and catalyze the emergence of strong SMEs. The grants will be managed by Participating Financial Institutions (PFIs) to be selected following the World Bank’s IPF policy. Eligibility criteria specific to grants are defined in Annex 2. Further details will be defined in the Grants Manual (GM) which will be finalized prior to effectiveness. The selected PFIs will enter into a legal “Participation Agreement” with the MAGEL, which is a disbursement condition for this subcomponent. (a) Window #1 (US$6 million): To address the limited access to finance in the agri-food sector in vulnerable regions such as Diffa, Tahoua, and Tillabéri, the project will provide matching grants for working capital and small investments in productive agricultural assets that have a demonstrated potential to improve the incomes of, create jobs for or increase the resilience of beneficiaries. The following could be eligible under this window: producer groups, youth and women groups, and SMEs already operating or interested in farming and activities resulting in value-addition for agri-food products. These groups would have to show (i) that they have received support for productive partnerships under the productive partnership program or have other pre-identified off-takers or markets; and (ii) that they currently have no access to financial services from financial institutions. Grants under this window will range from US$500 to US$3,000. Seventy percent of the grants (in number) will be allocated to women and young people (under 35 years old). Grants will cover up to 80 percent of the costs of the subproject presented by eligible beneficiaries, while the beneficiaries will have to provide a minimum of 20 percent in cash or in-kind. Women- and youth-led SMEs and groups will be required to provide only 10 percent cash or in-kind contributions and will receive grants covering up to 90 percent of the costs of the eligible investment. All beneficiaries will be required to open accounts in a financial institution (microfinance, bank, or mobile account). PFIs in charge of grants under this window will receive management fees to ensure the quality of their services; and (b) Window #2 (US$22 million): To address the limited access to finance for producer groups and SMEs in the regions of Diffa, Tahoua, Tillabéri, Niamey, Zinder, and Agadez, the project’s CSF program will provide matching grants backed by loans from PFIs for investment in subprojects in the agri-food sector. Under this window, the CSF program, in accordance with the FISAN principles, is a cost-sharing program between beneficiaries, donors, and financial institutions. The project will provide grants for up to 40 percent of the costs of each subproject, while the beneficiaries will have to prove that they have obtained loans from a PFI for up to 50 percent of the subproject costs. The remaining 10 percent of the subproject funding will be provided by the beneficiaries in the form of cash contributions. Eligible subprojects under this window include working capital and investments, such as equipment, storage, small infrastructure for production, post harvesting and processing activities, and any other activities related to the agri-food sector. Where feasible, energy efficient equipment as well as climate-resilient and energy efficient design storage and small infrastructure facilities will be supported. The CSF will be accessible to producer groups, processors groups, and SMEs (including startups) who would have received support under the productive partnership program, or who have a pre-identified off-taker. Grants under this window may range from US$4,000 to US$100,000. In the specific case of women and youth, beneficiaries will receive grants up to 50 percent of the subproject costs while they will have to prove that they have obtained loans from a PFI for up to 40 percent of the subproject costs. In-kind contributions would be accepted for women- or youth-led SMEs and women or youth groups for projects with total costs less than US$20,000. 50. Subcomponent 2.3: Providing support to financial institutions (US$11 million equivalent from IDA with IFC participation of US$6 million). To address the high risks of lending to the agri-food sector, the project will put in place a risk-sharing mechanism, and it will strengthen the capacity of financial intermediaries to catalyze the supply of credit from financial intermediaries under the CSF scheme. The subcomponent, to be further detailed in the Risk Sharing Facility Manual (RSFM), is divided into two parts and will benefit from the participation of the IFC. (a) Risk-Sharing Mechanism (US$6 million). A risk-sharing facility (RSF) will be put in place to incentivize financial institutions (the same PFIs that are participating under subcomponent 2.2) to provide the 50 percent credit to producers, producer groups, and SMEs in the agri-food sector under Window #2 of the CSF program. The RSF fund will be managed by two independent fund administrators. i. An IDA allocation of US$3 million will be used as a "first loss" to enable the IFC to set up an RSF of up to US$9 million. This RSF will function as a partial portfolio guarantee for PFIs (particularly commercial banks) loans in the agricultural sector (i.e. 50 percent coverage of the credit risks borne by PFIs). The IFC RSF will cover 50 percent of the principal of defaulted loans offered by the commercial banks under Window 2 of the CSF scheme (described in subcomponent 2.2) and in accordance with a Risk Sharing Facility Framework Agreement between IDA, IFC, the MAGEL, and in line with the RSFM; ii. A local risk sharing facility (LRSF) to be managed by an independent firm (Fund Manager) and located at the Société Sahélienne de Financement (SAHFI), the private local guarantee company will be established by the project. The US$3 million IDA allocation will serve for the establishment and operationalization of an RSF to improve access to finance from the public bank and MFIs that will not be covered by IFC. The IDA contribution will serve for the capitalization of the Partial Credit Guarantee (PCG) fund that could serve commercial banks and MFIs. The project will also support the costs of PCG management along with technical assistance to SAHFI. The Fund Manager will be selected through an international competitive bidding process (see details in Annex 2). This fund manager will work with SAHFI pursuant to a legal agreement between the MAGEL, SAHFI, and the LRSF Manager (the “Local Risk-Sharing Facility Establishment Agreement”) which is a disbursement condition for the LRSF. Part of the IDA financing will serve to cover the costs of the LRSF manager and technical assistance related to the risk sharing facility in accordance with the LRSF agreement; and iii. As the two guarantee providers under the project, IFC and SAHFI, to the extent possible, will be aligned in terms of processes, risk coverage, pricing and other requirements from the PFIs. Both guarantee schemes will also follow the same operations manual (the RSFM). The selection of financial institutions will follow World Bank Policy and Procedures for IPF operations and follow financial stability and performance criteria. IFC will conduct additional due diligence to ensure that the selected PFIs fit with IFC’s investment criteria.22 Financial Institutions (FIs) that do not qualify under IFC policies due to structural aspects (public, or semi-public entities) but which qualify under World Bank Policy and Procedures for IPF operations and meet financial stability and performance criteria, will be served by SAHFI. PFIs will sign a Partial Credit Guarantee Agreement with either IFC or SAHFI. (b) Technical assistance to PFIs and to FISAN23 to address the limited capacity of financial institutions for agricultural credit. Technical assistance to FISAN will aim at strengthening their capacity to implement agriculture finance policies including the warehouse receipt financing strategy. The technical assistance to the PFIs will include (i) the establishment of agricultural finance units within PFIs; (ii) support for the establishment of a network of gender-sensitive agents in the project areas; (iii) capacity building for the development of more suitable financial products, including financing of leasing and storage receipts, mobile finance and other products; and (iv) improving risk capacities and the development of credit assessment techniques based on financial and non-financial information provided by the database to be created as part of the World Bank Smart Villages for Rural Growth and Digital Inclusion project (P167543); 24 (v) farm credit risk management; (vi) support for the application of the principles of environmental safeguarding; and (vii) support to better understand climate risks and the impacts of climate change as well as design and implement adequate risk- reduction and risk- transfer mechanisms. The costs of technical assistance for capacity building could be shared between the project and the PFIs. Component 3: Project coordination (US$13 million equivalent from IDA) 51. The objective of this component is to support MAGEL in the implementation of the project. This component would provide support to the National Coordination Unit (NCU) in MAGEL for all activities required to manage IDA funds, procure IDA-funded goods, works and services, conduct project monitoring and evaluation (M&E), including Iterative Beneficiary Monitoring (IBM), and comply with safeguard policies. It will also implement a communication strategy, including communication campaigns that work closely with women associations and traditional leaders. It will provide the necessary gender-inclusive training and equipment support to the MAGEL, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, the Ministry of Commerce and Private Sector Development, the Ministry of Planning, and the High Commissioners 3N initiative at central and regional level to carry out gender-sensitive, technical monitoring of project implementation and M&E for the aspects that concern them in the context of the project. Component 4: Contingent Emergency Response (US$0 from IDA) 52. The CERC will be established and managed in accordance with the provisions of World Bank Policy and Bank Directive on Investment Project Financing. The project’s CERC will be triggered only when the Government has officially declared an emergency and a statement of the facts is provided justifying the request to activate the use of emergency funding. If the World Bank agrees with the determination of the disaster and associated response needs, this component allows the Government to request the World Bank to recategorize and reallocate financing from other project components to cover emergency response and recovery costs. C. Project Beneficiaries 53. Direct beneficiaries. The project is expected to benefit primarily an estimated 25,000 small and medium crop, sedentary livestock, and fish farming households, and small and medium enterprises in target areas. Women and youth are targeted beneficiaries, and the numbers reached will be monitored. Direct project beneficiaries also include: (i) PFIs; (ii) agriculture and livestock producer and processor organizations and (iii) public agricultural support services. 54. Indirect beneficiaries. Indirect beneficiaries include: (i) on the production, processing and marketing side: other agriculture, livestock, and fish farmers not directly involved in project activities, but who will benefit particularly from improved control of crop and animal diseases and higher quality crop and livestock inputs and services; (ii) value chain stakeholders (buyers and processors) who will not directly benefit from financial support from the project but would benefit from increased provision of financing for crop, livestock, poultry, and fish commodities and improved access to credit; (iii) on the consumption side, consumers in Niger who will benefit from increased and better quality crop and animal products and nutritional benefits at the household level; (iv) other indirect beneficiaries will be agriculture and livestock value chain service providers, including private veterinarians and inputs providers (seeds, fertilizers, feed, and veterinary medicines); and (v) any beneficiaries of reforms supported in the sector.

Inclusive Value Chain Development Project
Company Name Ministry of Agriculture
Funded By 55
Country Mauritania , Western Africa
Project Value 52 Million
Project Detail

A total of 285,600 farmers, particularly women and young people, in six regions of southern Mauritania will benefit from a project designed to improve food security and nutrition, increase the incomes of rural poor households, create jobs and reduce the countrys dependence on food imports. The Inclusive Value Chain Development Project (PRODEFI) will build upon IFADs experience in the country and elsewhere in the region by adopting a poverty reduction approach based on supporting production and processing to respond to market demand. The first phase of the project will focus on horticulture, poultry farming, goat milk and non-timber forest products. Inland fishing will be tested around Lake Foum Gleita. Following market studies, new income-generating crops or activities will be defined for the second phase of the eight-year project. The farmers will receive training and advisory services to improve their production models and adapt them to climate change. In that regard, the project will facilitate, through an Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP) grant, the use of solar energy -- from production to storage and processing – and promote sustainable management techniques for natural resources such as water, pasturelands and seeds. In addition, to better match supply and demand, PRODEFI will develop an inclusive approach, promoting public-private-producers partnerships (4Ps) in the interest of smallholder farmers and facilitating their access to markets, which proved to be a very powerful pathway to reduce poverty in the previous IFAD supported project, Value Chains Development Programme for Poverty Reduction.

Project Detail

The objective of the First Phase of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Regional Electricity Access Project for Western Africa is to increase grid electricity access in the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, the Republic of Mali, and the Republic of The Gambia. There are three components to the project, the first component being Design, supply, and installation (DSI) of electricity distribution infrastructure to maximize new connections. This component specifically supports: (a) the detailed design, supply, and installation of distribution networks through the construction of approximately 3,900 km of 33 kilovolt (KV) MV lines, approximately 1,060 33KV/400 volt(V) distribution substations, and approximately 3,700 km of 400 V LV lines to expand grid coverage and maximize the number of new connections; and (b) the supply and installation of last mile connection equipment, including service drops, smart meters for large consumers, prepaid meters, and ready boards for LV customers in each country and street lighting, all through the financing of non-consulting services, equipment and consulting services. The second component is the supervision of the construction and technical advisory services under component one of the project. This component will finance the costs associated with the recruitment of an Owner’s Engineer who will be recruited on a competitive basis under the project to supervise the work carried out under component one. The Owner’s Engineer will also monitor compliance with safeguard instruments (environmental and social) related to construction. Finally, the third component is the project coordination and technical assistance. In the spirit of strengthening national and regional capacities, this component will finance a combination of technical assistance and project management support to assist recipients in successfully implementing the project and preparing for future phases under the program. Specifically, this component will finance the strengthening of recipient implementation teams responsible for project implementation, expected project costs associated with the management of safeguards excluding the resettlement costs, and technical advisory services pertaining to preparation studies, such as least-cost electricity access development plans, for future projects in the region. The component will include two subcomponents: regional implementation support, and national implementation support
