We conclude the second phase of the commercial farming project in Angola

28 October, 2020

Incatema Consulting & Engineering has completed phase two of the consultancy financed by the World Bank that has carried out the diagnosis and georeferencing of the main supporting infrastructures, corresponding to the value chains of corn, soy, beans, coffee, eggs and fowl from production through to sale in various provinces of the Republic of Angola.

This work, framed within the National Programme for supporting Commercial Farming of the Ministry of Agriculture of Angola, and financed by the World Bank and the French Development Agency (AFD), gives continuity to phase one of the project, also executed by Incatema and concludes the project, with an action surface between the two phases of approximately 300,000 km2 subdivided into two action corridors:

  • North Corridor: Provinces of Luanda, Bengo, Kwanza North, Malanje and Uíge
  • South Corridor: Provinces of Kwanza Sul, Huambo, Bié, Huila and Benguela

The database developed makes it possible to enhance the development of the main value chains

The database developed as part of this job by Incatema makes it possible to easily and intuitively geolocate production, transformation and/or storage infrastructures, along with the main commercial producers of the 6 target value chains, irrigation perimeters, distributors of consumables, power lines, river courses, roads, etc,; and also to know their geospatial location, their main characteristics, such as state of conservation, production capacity, etc.

Thanks to this software and to use of the World Bank application “Road Lab”, it is possible to locate and identify critical points of connection between the production areas and the main sales markets or supply zones, enormously facilitating decision-making and the prioritisation of interventions to be conducted to foster the development of each of these value chains, as already reported here.
