Cactus Sudan


  • GAFÉIAS Directorate Environment & Food Security Project P14 Cactus Sudan: Establishing industrial processing and marketing of Cactus-based food products for increased income in rural communities in Sudan - Cactus in Sudanese Deserts: marginal to competitive crop



GAFÉIAS Sudan foundation (2016-04),

UNIDO Service Summary Sheet (SSS) development (2016-06 till 07)




The purpose of GAFÉIAS interventions in the Cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica) products value chain in Sudan is to increase the efficiency of transactions within the value chain to ensure that the beneficiaries of the interventions, particularly small scale resource poor farmers and entrepreneurs, derive maximum benefit from participation in this value chain and that their development objectives are met with due consideration to economic, social and environmental sustainability. In this particular project, emphasis lies on processing and marketing of Cactus products as these segments have been identified as virtually lacking. GAFÉIAS will initiate and provide technical assistance to farming communities and provide these with value addition and skills upgrading opportunities through the utilization of Cactus fruits and pads.
