The project “Improving Agricultural Resilience to Salinity through Development and Promotion of Pro-poor Technologies” (or RESADE), is funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the BADEA - Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa.

Targeting Botswana, The Gambia, Liberia, Mozambique, Namibia, Sierra Leone, and Togo, the project aims to increase agricultural productivity and incomes of farming communities in salt-affected agricultural areas by introducing salt-tolerant crops and associated agronomic management practices; developing value chains for new cropping systems; and building capacity of farmers and extension workers in salinity resilience and climate-smart agriculture in collaboration with national agricultural research and extension services.
