Project Description

The project will work with dairy field staff (10 people) to improve their capacity to provide services to direct and association suppliers. The technical and capacity building activities will focus on improving food safety practices and managerial capacities of 10 coops (representing over 2,000 farmers) and about 15 large farmers. The climate-smart practices that will be implemented at the farm and milk collection center levels will be monitored by using FAO’s Gleam-I tool. In addition, local financial institutions will be approached to assess the possibility of structuring dairy-specific financial products.

People Affected By This Project

The objective of the project is to strengthen the technical and managerial capacities of different supply chain actors (producers, cooperatives, collection centers and a private sector company) to ensure a stable, high-quality supply of milk.
