ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

The Guinean NGO ADIC-Nafaia aims at contributing to  sustainable development and ensure food security in the communities as part of an effort to fight hunger and reduce poverty. Its main fields of interven-tion are agricultural production and organisational and institutional strengthening. The project support family farming in the east part of GB aims at promoting sustainable agricultural production initiatives to increase the economic income and improve the diet of the communi-ties. This project, aimed mainly at producer groups/ associations, results from the identification of the following central problems: (i) cyclical food shortage in times of crisis; ii) food insecurity  due to the practice of subsistence and low productivity  agriculture; (iii) lack of or reduced technical qualification of farmers in the use of more profitable and environmentally friendly farming techniques; (iv) scarcity of income-generating activities complementary to the production and marketing of unprocessed food.
