AfDB-Cote d’Ivoire: Validating Policy on Rice

A workshop has been taking place in Yamoussoukro to examine and validate a study of the country’s rice-growing policy. Organized by the Ministry of Agriculture and attended by the African Development Bank's Resident Representative Sangbé Ngardinga, the meeting brought together some experts in the field, development partners, rice producers and some traditional chiefs. Participants identified and prioritized strategic actions to be taken at the institutional, legal, regulatory and financial levels in order to strengthen the sector.
