Project General Description
The Food Crisis Response and Emergency Support Programme for Togo (PRCASUT) is a Crisis Response Budget Support (CRBS) operation prepared under the African Emergency Food Production Facility (AEFPF). This is a Transition Support Facility (TSF) grant of UA 4 Million. The programme is broken down into two complementary components to sustainably increase food production: (i) facilitation of small-scale producers’ access to factors of production and agroclimatic information; and (ii) strengthening of the agricultural sector institutional framework. The measures supported by the Programme will contribute to the achievement of the following outcomes: (i) maize and rice productivity and production have increased; (ii) small producers’ access to the factors of production is facilitated; (iii) the institutional framework for facilitating small-scale producers’ access to the factors of production is strengthened. PRCASUT will be implemented from July 2022 to December 2023.
The Programme’s objective is to strengthen food sovereignty and build the resilience of smallscale producers to the impacts of the war in Ukraine. The specific objectives are to i) facilitate access by small-scale agricultural producers to climate-resilient seeds and highquality fertilisers and ii) reinforce the institutional framework of the agricultural sector.
The programme will allow 25,500 agricultural producers, 40% of whom will be women, to receive 500 tonnes of certified climate-resilient seeds and 7,700 tonnes of fertilisers, to sow about 25,500 additional hectares, to receive ago-climatic information and harvest about 37,500 tonnes of cereals.
