Increasing Food Security and Agricultural Productivity
C4CP, funded by USAID from 2014 to 2018, aims at increasing food security and incomes for men and women cotton farmers in targeted areas of Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad and Mali. The project will raise the incomes of cotton producers and processors by introducing competitive and sustainable strategies to boost farm productivity and improve post-harvest processes.
The project will help regional organizations achieve their objectives and focus, particularly on the regional coordination capacity of cotton developed by the West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA).
