The said program is aimed at improving the economic performance of private actors in the agriculture and livestock sector by promoting production systems adapted to climate change. It also aims to strengthen the capacities of key players in this sector (particularly in aspects related to land and natural resource management) to preserve the environment in the cotton-producing areas of the Northern regions.
