The Nigerian government has ratified two agreements worth about 23 billion CFA francs with the West African Development Bank (BOAD).

These two agreements will finance the Hydro-Agricultural Development with Smart and Climate Resilient Agricultural Practices (PAHA-AIC) project.

The objective is to contribute to guaranteeing sustainable food security by strengthening the resilience of populations in the face of climate change, through modern irrigation and agricultural production techniques.

This project will be implemented through several components, including studies, the sustainable development of the rehabilitation of perimeters vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change, and support for a sustainable increase in agricultural productivity and income of groups and farmer cooperatives in the developed and rehabilitated perimeters.
