The Central African Republic is a landlocked country in Central Africa with an estimated population of five (05) million inhabitants. This country is weakened by many years of politico-military conflicts that have negatively impacted economic development and raised the level of poverty of the populations. Commercial activities of the country, on national and international level, are impacted by the landlocked nature of the country and the non-existence and / or state of viable communication roads. As the country is returning to stability, the economic sectors in general and agriculture in particular are struggling to recover. Agriculture, a major economic sector of the country, employs nearly 70% of the population, and faces many challenges that constitute real bottlenecks at the origin of the difficulties in reviving the sector. 

 These include, among others, the following:

  • Security aspects, with the persistence of violence and conflicts that are blocking the development of agricultural activities and thus generating food and nutritional insecurity for the population;

  • The isolation of production areas due to the poor condition of the roads creating difficulties in collecting and marketing agricultural products;

  • The very poor access of producers to the following: agricultural inputs, finance, basic agricultural and rural infrastructure equipment;

  • A weak structure of the environment, hence the predominance of activities often limited to self-consumption;

  • Recurring conflicts between farmer-breeders or wild animal farmers linked to massive destruction of production;

  • A deficit in terms of decentralized public services, negatively impacting the possibilities of stimulus and extension actions;

  • Youth unemployment in production areas due to several factors.
