OXFAM in partnership with CRUDAN and DEC has held a close-out review meeting of Pro-resilience Action (PROACT) Project to review the extent to which the
On the future of the project, Tchona said; “We are not pulling out of the communities soon, we will be staying for a couple of years. The idea is to consolidate the gains that have been there on a number of fronts. One is the financial inclusion aspect that we have developed there; second aspect is the market linkage; third is how do we work with people, to mobilise the people power to further engage government to demand for better services; and fourth one is how do we support government to respond to these demands, because it takes two to tango. Communities demanding for services and government is responding.”
ADVERTISEMENTSpeaking on the number of communities that have been empowered under the project, he said; “We have now over 80,000 households and over 120 communities that have been empowered in Adamawa and Kebbi States. When we say communities, it is not small villages, we are talking about communities of a size of 2,000 households.”
European Union Programme Manager, Temitope Omole while addressing the media said the EU is particularly delighted to see that within the last five years the PROACT project has delivered on the set objective that the project was designed.He said; “We targeted increase in food productivity for the people at the rural communities to increase access to liquid cash because we understand that for you to deal with the problem of poverty you need to have access to consistent stream of income. More importantly when you grow more food, when you expand the capacity of farmers to do better, it important to also create market access which the project has also done. headtopics.com
“Going forward in terms of sustainability we will ensure that the governance of this project is taken seriously. We are very much interested in seeing that government is in the driving seat and that government is playing an active role in ensuring that they translate some of the action and policies into budgetary provisions and releases that can continue to improve service delivery at the local government and rural community level.
“We will create the food buffer zone, where we have areas where there is accessibility, areas where insecurity is not much and ensure that we create food production zones within these particular area that we call buffer zones.“Based on the success of the PROACT, we will have extended implementation to Taraba state. Going forward in the future, agriculture, green economy will still continue to be part of the EU support to Nigeria and EU will continue to be a friend of Nigeria in development project in terms of support to government to deliver services.
Omale further stated that, “I can assure you that it is not only Kebbi and Adamawa that have the challenge of food insecurity, there are other states especially states that are very close to the Sahara Desert bordering the north of Nigeria like Kastina, Jigawa, Sokoto, there are different types of challenges based on analysis and assessment that we did we decided that we took, we decided to work in Adamawa and Kebbi.
