“Nó pui asas pa dizinvolvimentu” – Promotion of the Poultry industry in Guinea-Bissau – Phase II

Guinea-Bissau: regions of Cacheu, Oio, Biombo, Autonomous Sector of Bissau, Gabu and Bafatá

This project aims to contribute to the development of the poultry industry in Guinea-Bissau, creating opportunities for socio-economic development. The project builds upon the experience of previous projects, financed by the European Union, namely: “Nó pui asas pa disinvolvimentu – Promotion of the poultry industry in Guinea-Bissau” and “Nô Fia na Crias – Integrated Cooperative and Community System for Poultry, Derivatives for the Region of Cacheu”.

Both aimed to contribute to food and nutrition security in target regions of Guinea-Bissau by providing animal products as well as products of animal origin (chickens and eggs). Each project promoted the creation and development of a poultry social company: CEDAVES and Piu Piu Awara. The current project, in addition to supporting the development of these companies, will support new poultry farmers, as well as contribute to the promotion of complementary services to breeders and to the poultry industry (associations between poultry farmers, para-veterinary network, training, health care, para-veterinary pharmacy network, etc.).
