The Programme is to be undertaken in Cotton-4 countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali) Malawi, Nigeria and Uganda and is to be implemented during 2012-14. The Programme is aimed at enhancing capacities in cotton sector in the identified countries through various interventions related to capacity building and technology transfer.
