“The “Circular Bioeconomy in Abidjan: from food waste to fork” (BioDAF) project is a concrete response to several challenges, including cleaning up our markets, valorizing organic waste and creating jobs…. The project involves setting up a farm-school for the production and rearing of black soldier fly larvae in Abidjan. In addition to the production of agricultural inputs (dried larvae and digestate) to meet the needs of urban and peri-urban agriculture, the project aims to train around twenty people in the breeding of black soldier fly larvae, who will in turn be able to develop cultivation units in their neighborhoods, based on the collection of bio-waste from Abidjan’s markets”.

EXPADD has been chosen to carry out this study, the results of which are eagerly awaited!
