Commercializing Food Security in Tanzania
Northern Tanzania is developing into a strategic maize production zone; but without private investments in farm mechanization and drying & storage facilities, the emerging farmers have no incentive to further up-scale crop production.
The commercializing food Security project is organized as a public private partnership (PPP) to address the needs of emerging farmers in and around the operational regions of the partnership across Tanzania
We increase investments in efficient maize, beans post-harvest & marketing systems, resulting in effective incentives for farmers to increase maize production in N Tanzania's breadbasket area, with our business model tested and scalable; and cross-border trade policies more favourable.
We are improving food Security through higher maize production at local, national and regional level; ensuring improved access, availability, and utilization of maize produce; and with specific focus on inclusiveness of women/youth and climate change-friendly production systems
