In Cote d’Ivoire there is a direct link between the lack of a sustainable food sources and the health and education of the population. The socio-economic situation in the country has led to a decline in the standard of living for more than 65 percents of its population.
Food sufficiency is one basic necessity that every developing nation must achieve. For as long as people are undernourished, they cannot achieve their full potential, they remain prone to ill health, their learning ability is compromised, and their capacity to be productive is curtailed.
IAA’s agricultural program is designed to capitalize on Cote d’Ivoire’s natural gift, its agricultural land and its people. Through the shared efforts of Cote d’Ivoire’s human resources, IAA’s program plans, and access to sufficient agricultural equipment and supplies to transition from subsistence agricultural practices to a modern one and provide equal production capability to participants. By working with local and foreign agricultural research institutions the people of Cote d’Ivoire can begin to embrace limitless prosperity.
We set goals and objectives for management and participants, develop action plans for their achievement, inspect expectations while holding each other accountable for results. The goal of hunger eradication must be taken seriously.
- Form an alliance that brings together landowners and farmers to create a support system,
- Establish organizational programs that are designed to assist IAA in developing and implementing logistical tools to increase sustainable food production
- Provide and manage supplies and equipments to meet projections and future expansions.
- Create conditions for program expansion based upon community self-sustainability.
