Sudan - Agricultural Value Chain Development Project (AVCDP)
The overall goal of the Agricultural Value Chain Development Project (AVCDP) is to contribute to the attainment of Sudan’s National Agriculture Investment Plan (SNAIP) goals in achieving a comprehensive national socio-economic development driven by a dynamic agricultural sector. The specific objective of the project is to improve household incomes, food security, and climate resilience through infrastructure development, market access and trade facilitation as well as enhancing production and productivity. The project will be implemented in three states, namely, North Kordofan, West Kordofan, and Khartoum and will focus on four commodity value chains: Groundnuts, Sesame, Potato, and Gum Arabic. The project cost is estimated at UA 32.74 million, of which AfDB is financing UA 29.64 million or 90.5% and the Government of Sudan will contribute UA 3.10 million or 9.5%. The project is expected to start in July/August 2018 with a duration of five years.
