The Kano State Agro Pastoral Development Project is aimed at supporting the Government’s efforts to promote inclusive economic growth in Kano State. The Agro-pastoral development approach of the proposed project will target the most vulnerable, including women and youth, to promote increased agricultural production and commercialization.
The theory of change of the project is to transform the smallholder farming to commercially viable businesses by developing commodity value chains in order to reduce rural poverty, food insecurity and unemployment. The project will contribute to the Government efforts to reduce socio-economic inter-states disparities as well as rural urban migration.
The project is consistent with the economic Recovery and Growth Plan 2017-2020 and the Kano State Development Plan 2016-2025. The project will contribute to the implementation of IDB’s MCPS, particularly Pillar 2 “Integrated Rural Development”.
