Approximately 85% of the 380,000 people living in two Guinea regions are reliant on mangos for their income, which includes 258,000 women producers and harvesters who combine mango production with gardening and handicrafts. EIF aims to improve the competitiveness of the mango sector and small producers in particular by reinforcing and strengthening the capacity of all actors involved in the mango value chain. This is being done through interventions in five districts in two of Guinea's regions: Kindia and Télimélé in "Basse Guinée" (in the Western regions of Guinea), and Kankan, Mandiana and Siguiri in "Haute Guinée" (in the Eastern regions of Guinea).

Results:

  • As part of the strategy to combat mango pests, a training programme for producers was developed in August 2015 in collaboration with the National Plant Protection Service.
  • 177 participants involved in mango production were trained on topics including plant production, orchard creation and grafting techniques.
  • 40.6 hectares of new commercial orchards were planted in five districts.
  • 3 pilot nurseries were installed in Kankan, Mandiana and Siguiri to bring producers closer to improved seedling production sites.
