Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The project will be part of ADB''s on-going and continuing efforts to assist the Government to (i) more effectively use its natural resources and contribute to higher levels of agricultural production, (ii) expand employment opportunities (through forward and backward linkages) and (iii) increase rural household incomes and reduce poverty. The project is consistent with Government's priorities for modernizing the agriculture, natural resources and environment (ANRE) sector, and promoting economic growth and sustainable use of the country's natural resources. These priorities are also reflected in ADB''s country partnership strategy (CPS) and assessment, strategy and roadmap (ASR) for the ANRE sector.
