CARD is a consultative group of bilateral donors and regional and international organizations working in collaboration with rice-producing African countries in sub-Sahara Africa (SSA). Its goal is to support the efforts of African countries to double rice production on the continent to 28 million tons per annum within 10 years (by 2018). CARD Phase2 has just started in 2019, with a renewed target of further doubling of rice project in SSA, from 28 million to 56 million MT in the next 12 years (by 2030). In the phase 2, we welcome nine new member countries, namely Angola, Burundi, Chad, Congo Republic, Gabon, Guinea Bissau, Malawi, Niger and Sudan, and one new partner, WFP.
