(Business in Cameroon) - In the framework of the 3rd Debt Relief and Development Contract (C2D), the French Development Agency (AFD) and the Cameroonian Ministry of Economy, recently signed agreements for the allocation of a global envelope of FCfa 90 billion, for the development of the agro-pastoral sector.

Concrètement, ces fonds, apprend-on officiellement, sont destinés au Programme de consolidation et de pérennisation du dispositif de formation et d’insertion agropastoral et halieutique (PCP-Afop), et au Programme d’amélioration de la compétitivité des exploitations familiales agropastorales (Acefa), tous mis en place par le gouvernement.

Pour rappel, le programme Afop vise à renforcer les compétences des acteurs agropastoraux, grâce à la création, à travers le pays, d’écoles et autres centres de formation spécialisés dans les métiers agropastoraux.

As a reminder, the Afop program is meant to strengthen the skills of agro-pastoral operators, via the creation, throughout the country of schools and other training centres specialised in agro-pastoral professions.

The Acefa program for its part consists in providing producers and livestock farmers with financial support and technical expertise, to enable them to develop their activities and therefore increase their income.
