Rural development scheme design, Nigeria

Project:

TerraVerde designed a large-scale agricultural and agro-industrial scheme that includes both smallholders and commercial farms. The company performed agricultural planning, designed irrigation and water usage, defined agro-processing, conducted farmer training, defined agricultural production enhancement and assimilated agro-technology into the scheme. To help ensure success, TerraVerde analyzed the economic and socioeconomic aspects of the initiative.

Result:

The project is a major contributor to rural development in the area. Three hundred families—about 2,000 people, will directly upgrade their standards of living and welfare status. The agro-industrial center, which is under construction, and central farming facilities will provide an additional 2,000 job opportunities. The project will comprise a center for standard and value-added processing, and a training and knowledge dissemination center.
