IFAD Grant to Boost DRC Smallholder Farmers

IFAD to provide a US$68.4 million grant to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to improve the productivity and incomes of smallholder farmers

The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) will provide a US$68.4 million grant to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to improve the productivity and incomes of smallholder farmers in the western part of the country.

The grant agreement for the Kinshasa Food Supply Centre Support Programme was signed by the country’s vice minister of finance, Roger Shulungu Runika.

Although the country exported agricultural products prior to its independence in 1960, the sector has seen a steady decline and stagnation since.
