Senegal - Agricultural Value Chains Resilience Support Project (PARFA) - July 2021
Oyster cultivation in the Delta of Saloum, a tropical ecosystem of mangroves with a very rich biodiversity. The large oysters will be taken out of the nets in a few weeks and brought back to the village, while the smaller ones will be left in the nets to grow larger. Oyster cultivation generates more than 70% of the jobs in the value chain and represent a source of high income for the women.
The aim of PARFA is to sustainably improve the food security and income of small-scale producers – including both farmers and herders – and create remunerative, sustainable jobs in rural communities. It focuses on expanding the access of smallholders and their organizations to effective services and production infrastructure, appropriate technologies and markets.
