Tanzania NAFAKA II: Cereals Market System Development

NAFAKA promotes the competitiveness of the maize and rice value chains, leading to improved productivity and incomes which, in turn, accrue to smallholder farmers and rural households. Increases in the availability and access to food, in close coordination with efforts to increase consumption at the household level, are expected to mitigate food insecurity and malnutrition in rural areas. Improved competitiveness and productivity will be dependent on the openness and ease of trade.
