Partners Overview

ISCO’s efforts span an area of 300 ha of community fields, extending into 750 ha of pilot farms, and application on 12 000 ha for households. ISCO also supports the processing of agricultural products and their evacuation, as well as breeding through the vaccination of chickens against newcastle disease the domestication of pouched rats for meat.
