ACTED mène actuellement un projet pilote d’appui aux petits fermiers du département de la Bouenza, dans le sud du Congo, en partenariat avec le Programme Alimentaire Mondial (PAM).
Au Congo, la lutte contre la faim et la sécurité alimentaire sont des enjeux de taille – or, le secteur agricole reste peu développé, et 70% des produits alimentaires sont importés. Avec ce projet d’appui aux petits producteurs locaux, ACTED et le PAM entendent promouvoir une alimentation scolaire à base de produits locaux, tout en renforçant la sécurité alimentaire dans la région.
