"TSY Mitolike" and the birth of a project.

This chapter outlines the beginnings and evolution of the Upper Mandrare River Basin Development Project (PHBM) initiated in 1996 as a response to the severe food crisis that hit all of southern Madagascar in 1991 and 1992. The objective of the five-year project was to reduce rural poverty and to ensure the food security of the population.
