Nigeria - Third National Fadama Development Project : environmental assessment (English)

The objective of the Third National Fadama Development Project for Nigeria is to contribute to the government's strategy for poverty reduction by improving the welfare and living conditions of many poor and vulnerable communities in the participating states. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: diagnose pest problems affecting fadama crop and livestock production as the basis for FCA members to develop a shared vision on priority needs and IPM opportunities; develop the capacity of FCA members (especially the farmers) to understand and manage pest problems through farmer participatory learning approaches with complementary participatory research on feedback issues emanating from farmers' field experiences; and introduce and promote microbial pesticides and botanicals as alternatives to harmful pesticide regimes and thereby reduce environmental and personal health risks in fadama agriculture: with partnership inputs from the SP-IPM for sustainable access to microbial pesticides.
