Project Approach

The Productive Partnerships in Agriculture Project (PPAP) has developed a model approach that supports the creation of long-term partnerships between smallholder farmers, farmer groups and the private sector with technical assistance from government and civil society agencies.        

Our partnership building approach facilitates the realisation of the 3 project objectives:

  1. To strengthen institutional performance and industry coordination.
  2. To build productive partnerships between smallholder farmers and the private sector.
  3. To improve market access through the provision of critical infrastructure.

Our project partners are acknowledged below. More information is displayed in the sidebar.
