Project description

The EU's development cooperation intends to support the government of the autonomous Region of Bangsamoro in the Muslim Mindanao of Philippines to strengthen and consolidate its agri-fishery and agribusiness sectors through the project “Technical Assistance to the Bangsamoro Agri-Enterprise Pro-gramme – BAEP”.

The project aims to achieve its goal through two complementary outcomes, the production side (Value chain development) and the commercialization side (Investment and market). As a project result, local agricultural production should be improved in quality, diversity, consolidation and its response to the needs of the market. Project will ensure that smallholders farmers (IPs, women and youth) in their respec-tive communities  experience a sustained uplift in their incomes generated from farming/fishing. Focusing on quality farming/fishing systems will provide regular and consistent cash flows to the households. Similarly, the project (BAEP) will assist Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) in facilitating export of agri fishery products and processed food within the Philippines and the BIMP-EAGA trade corridor.

The intervention area of the project will cover BARMM region in the Philippines, with a focus on rural and remote areas and especially the island Provinces of BaSulTa in this region. Target groups will be mainly consisted of (i) Cooperative and Social Enterprise Authority (CSEA), and but also to the various other BARMM government agencies closely involved in agri-business development with local communities, indigenous people, women and youth and demobilisation of ex-combatants; (ii) stakeholders of the ru-ral/island communities: Private Sector, NGOs, Universities, CSOs and NSAs, Local Government Unit rep-resentatives; (iii) the rural population especially indigenous people, women and youth engaged in agricul-tural and fishing livelihoods and income-generating activities; (iv) the local entrepreneurs providing VC services and trade facilitation to farmer clusters.
