THIRD NATIONAL FADAMA DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
“Fadama” is a Hausa name for irrigable land--usually low-lying plains underlay by shallow aquifers found along Nigeria´s major river systems. Such lands are especially suitable for irrigated production and fishing, and traditionally provide feed and water for livestock. The enormous potential of this land is only very partially developed. The Fadama I and II projects successfully refined approaches for improved utilization of these lands. Fadama II is implementing an innovative local development planning (LDP) tool and building on the success of the community-driven development mechanisms. The cumulative impact of these earlier successful Bank-assisted projects attests to the robustness of the small-scale and community-based approach to fadama development in an environmentally sensitive manner.
The Fadama III + AF aims to scale up the impacts and the development effectiveness of a well- performing project by aligning it more closely with the new Agricultural Transformation Agenda which was adopted by the Government of Nigeria in 2011. It will support clusters of farmers in selected states with comparative advantage and high potential to increase production and productivity of cassava, rice, sorghum and horticulture value chains and link them to better organized markets, within the Selected states and SPCZs. The Fadama III + AF is consistent with the development objective of the parent Project. No major changes are proposed to the Project Development Objective, design or implementation arrangements of the original project. The main difference is that instead of national coverage as in the case under the parent project, the AF will have a narrow geographical focus on clusters of farmers in selected states with comparative advantage and high potential to increase production and productivity of cassava, rice, sorghum and horticulture value chains and link them to better organized markets. The Closing Date for the original project would be extended; and the revised Closing Date for both the parent project and the additional financing would be December 31, 2017.
