Development of Jatropha-based biofuel value chains in Benin – Phase II

The main purpose of the project was to strengthen CIRAPIP based on IITA’s experience and expertise on value chain analysis in Africa in order to effectively and efficiently implement this new project called ‘Development of Jatropha-based biofuel value-chain development in Benin. IITA being a strong research-for-development institution with sound track records in capacity building, CIRAPIP being an NGO with a strong field experience in technology testing and diffusion, and the need for capacity building in value chains and other subjects from IITA, the two parties agree on collaboration based on comparative advantage for an effective good achievement of the project’s goal.


The overall goal of this project is to promote the local economy and rural conditions of small scale farmers through equitable access to financially and economically profitable and sustainable renewable energy.
