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.
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.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
