Agri-Food Program for Integrated Resilience and Economic Development in the Sahel (Pro-ARIDES)


Pro-ARIDES is designed to contribute to increased resilience, food security and household incomes for farmers and (agro-)pastoralists in the Sudano-Sahelian zone of Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger.

To achieve this, a consortium of development professionals places public institutions and decentralized organizations at the heart of the program, with the objective of improving access to agricultural services, local economic development and natural resource and land management for the highest number of people.

Pro-ARIDES is a 10-year program funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, undertaken by SNV (lead), Care Netherlands, Wageningen University & Research, and with KIT in charge of action research and experiential learning.
