16. Issues/problems Apart from the general causes of poverty in the project area, such as geographical remoteness, poor infrastructure and vulnerability to external shocks, poverty is mainly attributable to the lack of governance, land tenure security, market access and integration of agriculture with livestock enterprises.
It also has its roots in limited access to improved production technology, inputs, irrigation water and services. Consequently, both agricultural production and productivity in the project area are extremely low, providing the target group little opportunity to improve their production environment and living conditions.
