Main Project Features:
The agricultural sector is one of the engines of the economy of the UEMOA Member States, contributing on average,
to the tune of 34% to GDP (World Bank, 2016), it occupies, depending on the country, between 60% and 85% of the working population and constitutes the main source of income for the majority of the population.
As part of achieving food security through the implementation of the EU Agricultural Policy (PAU), the UEMOA Commission has taken action to develop areas with high agricultural potential in the Member States.
In this context, the Malian State has allocated two (2) parcels of land to the UEMOA Commission, Kandiourou and Touraba, in the Niono Circle of the Niger Office Zone, in the form of a 50-year renewable emphyteotic lease. The two parcels total an area of 11,288 hectares.
