Description The project will support Suguna capital expenditure (capex) during fiscal year (FY) 2020 to FY2022 to construct 20 feed mills, four environment-controlled sheds for breeders, eight hatcheries, and various meat processing lines. The TA will complement the capex plan by strengthening the capacity of women for engagement as contract poultry farmers.
Objectives and Scope The project will support Suguna expansion across 13 identified states in India with the construction of modern feed mills, hatcheries, environment-controlled sheds, and meat processing lines; and the expansion of the company contract farming program from 40,000 to 55,000 smallholder poultry farmers. The TA will focus on building the farm management skills and financial literacy of 4,500 women contract farmers. The project will improve livelihoods and gender inclusion in rural areas, reduce malnutrition through the production of affordable proteins, and mitigate the impact of livestock farming on the environment and on climate change.
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The project is aligned with Strategy 2030, which calls for ADB to scale up its financing for agribusiness and to promote gender equality in at least 75% of the number of ADBs committed operations by 2030. The project is also consistent with the country partnership strategy, 2018 to 2022 for India, which supports (i) increasing agricultural productivity and rural incomes, (ii) reducing the rural urban income gap, (iii) doubling farm incomes within 5 years, and (iv) promoting gender equity. The project is consistent with Strategy 2030 Operational Plan for Priority 5 (Promoting Rural Development and Food Security, 2019 to 2024) , which calls for (i) direct support to private agribusiness clients linking smallholder farmers to markets; (ii) nonsovereign financing for sponsors across the food value chain focusing on quality standards and traceability; (iii) the production of sufficient, safe, nutritious, and affordable food for urban and rural consumers; and (iv) the reduction in agricultures contribution to GHG emissions through improved farming and livestock practices. The project is also aligned with Strategy 2030 Operational Plan for Priority 2 (Accelerating Progress in Gender Equality, 2019 to 2024), which seeks to expand operations in support of agribusiness value chains whereby women jobs and entrepreneurship opportunities will be enhanced in higher value-generating activities. The project will also complement two upcoming sovereign agribusiness value chain projects in India.

Corrective actions will be implemented to address gaps identified at corporate and subproject-level when subprojects are identified, to establish a formal environmental and social management system at corporate level, and to comply with ADB SPS 2009 requirements. An environmental and social monitoring report will be submitted to ADB on an annual basis.
