    Établir des partenariats pour des systèmes rizicoles durables en Afrique Sub-Saharienne au travers de la Coopération Sud-Sud - GCP/RAF/489/VEN 2021

    Rice consumption in Africa has grown exponentially in recent decades; however, most African countries are not self-sufficient in rice production. In sub-Saharan Africa, it is strongly believed that rice yields could be increased through a holistic strengthening of rice value chains. By increasing and improving production, countries would therefore be empowered to meet consumer demand for rice. This project was formulated in the context of South-South Cooperation (SSC) to contribute to the development of sustainable rice systems in sub-Saharan Africa by creating and leveraging partnerships between international, national and local actors from both the public and private sectors. Elements of its design included the promotion and production of the seeds of improved rice varieties, the improvement of post-harvest techniques among local farmers, and the identification, dissemination and adoption of good agricultural practices (GAPs) and effective rice production technologies.

    Rice consumption in Africa has increased dramatically over recent decades, growing faster than consumption of any other major staple on the continent. However, apart from Egypt, no African country is currently self-sufficient in terms of rice consumption. FAO implemented the project from May 2014 to December 2019, with the ten ministries of agriculture from the beneficiary countries. The project goal was to develop sustainable and productive rice systems in Africa to increase food security and enhance sustainable development of the rice food chain among smallholder farmers. South-South Cooperation was demonstrated to be an excellent mechanism for pooling resources and efforts in innovation and development processes. Sharing knowledge with decision makers and political consultation at the highest level was useful to reaffirm and update policies strategies and intervention priorities, and to mobilize partners from a large number of countries. Several producers, producer groups and communities successfully moved from subsistence farming to commercial farming by increasing production, reducing post-harvest losses and improving quality of rice through the use of appropriate post-harvest management technologies and equipment.
