Final Report - FONIO (Upgrading quality and competitiveness of fonio for improved livelihoods in West Africa)

Project ID: 15403
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

This is the final report for the 'Upgrading quality and competitiveness of fonio for improved livelihoods in West Africa' (FONIO) project. FONIO's objective was to upgrade quality and competitiveness of fonio in West Africa by improving production, adapted varieties - appropriated production and farming systems, technology - innovation in post-harvest mechanisation and processing, and marketing systems for local and export markets.

The report which details the objectives and successes of the project emphasises that the many results obtained under the project should not be seen as the culmination of the work done, but rather as a starting point for future operations, with a view to more effective promotion of fonio, a cereal that has long been neglected.
