Chad - The Lac Prefecture Rural Development Project - Project Completion Report
The Lac Prefecture Rural Development Project (PDRPL) is in line with the Government strategy to create an environment conducive to the production and marketing of agricultural surpluses. More specifically, the strategy laid emphasis on increasing productivity by intensifying traditional crops and promoting irrigated farming. The strategy also aimed to gradually modernize the livestock sub-sector. The Bank was approached to finance the project and, following an appraisal mission to Chad in August 1998, it awarded a loan of UA 17.3 million and a TAF grant of UA 3.06 million to the Chadian government, on the understanding that the project would be fully consistent with the ADF policy, which gave priority to an integrated approach with a view to poverty reduction.
