Information: IRD Gambia is a charitable, rural, international non-governmental organisation (NGO) committed to lifting people out of poverty and creating livelihoods among the most impoverished people around the world.

Areas of Activity:
Its areas of intervention are in building sustainable, self-sufficiency through agricultural productivity, forestry and the environment. 

Cashew Nuts
IRD has been involved in the Gambia River Basin Cashew Value Chain Enhancement Project (CEP) which involves thousands of farmers and processors in The Gambia, Guinea Bissau and Senegal. The purpose of the programme is to enhance the cashew production and distribution system and raise the incomes of all those engaged in its cultivation and processing.

The project aids food sufficiency by giving adequate training to growers, better cultivation methods, know how to process all parts of the fruit and nut, high yield seeds, processing equipment and better farmland management techniques. It aims, whenever possible, to have the nuts processed locally rather than in exported in its raw form.

Capacity Building
The International Relief and Development organisation sees capacity building as a concerted, joint effort that partners with communities, individuals, and organisations to develop and enhance livelihood skills that make people more self-sufficient.
