The Cotton Sector Reform Project in Benin, will facilitate transition to a competitive system, by supporting the private sector operations, and institutional change resulting from the privatization of the National Company for Agricultural Promotion's (SONAPRA) ginning activities. The project components' main focus is on supporting the institutions involved in cotton ginning, and primary marketing activities, namely the Association Inter-professionnelle du Coton (AIC), Centrale de Securisation des Paiements et du Recouvrement (CSPR), and Federations des Unions de Producteurs (FUPRO) become operationally effective, and institutionally strong.
