Yemen - Rainfed Agriculture and Livestock Project : restructuring (Vol. 2) : Data sheet (英语)

The objective of the Agriculture and Livestock Project for Yemen is to enable poor producers in rainfed areas to improve their production, processing and marketing systems and to protect their assets through: the development of farmer based systems of seeds management, the enhancement of livestock husbandry and health services, and the promotion of collective rural investments within the project area. The project area includes five Governorates identified by the borrower as Al-Mahweet, Hajjah, Al-Hodeidah, Lahej and Sana'a. The total project cost is US$30 million equivalent and during negotiation it was agreed that the International Development Association (IDA) would finance US$20 million equivalent only; this resulted in a US$10 million equivalent shortfall which the borrower intended to cover either through parallel financing from other donors or through financing from the Agriculture and Fishery Promotion Fund (AFPF). The International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD) agreed to provide parallel co-financing for the activities under part of the project in the amount of US$16.6 million equivalent. As the funding shortfall no longer exists, SFD feels confident that it can expand the scope of its activities into all five Governorates.
