The overall objective of the Programme 'Agri-connect: Supporting value chains for shared prosperity' is to contribute to inclusive economic growth, promote private sector development and job creation in the agricultural sector and to increase food and nutrition security in Tanzania, by promoting the productivity, commercialization and competitiveness of the tea, coffee and horticulture sectors.
To achieve broad-based, lasting change, Agri-connect targets actors throughout the targeted value, although the primary target groups are smallholder farming households, and in particular, youth and women. Beneficiaries/partners include:
- Agriculture public organisations at national and local level (government agencies, standards/certification bodies/health authorities, etc.)
- Private sector operators: smallholder farmers, cooperatives, processors, aggregators, input suppliers, traders, exporters, etc.
- Within the nutrition specific activities, households with a specific focus on Pregnant and Lactating Women and Malnourished children.
The objectives will be obtained through achievement.
