AfDB’s NERICA dissemination project receives US Treasury Award

23 July 2014. Washington D.C. The African Development Bank’s New Rice for Africa (NERICA) project received Development Impact Honors from the US Treasury Department in an awards ceremony.

The NERICA Dissemination Project increased domestic production and food security in seven West African countries, namely Benin, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Nigeria, Mali and Sierra Leone. The project was selected from a pool of 29 submissions from various multilateral development banks (MDBs). It is the third consecutive year in which an African Development Bank project has won a US Treasury Award.

The US Treasury Department’s Development Impact Honors awards promote the highest standards in development by recognizing outstanding projects undertaken by multilateral development banks. The program seeks to reward excellence in project design and implementation and to showcase the vital work MDBs carry out in communities, countries and regions to support the world’s poorest people.
