In June 2010 SNV, together with IFAD, organised a conference on ‘brokering knowledge for upscaling best practices in Inclusive Markets Access in East & Southern Africa’, which brought together over 70 participants from 11 African countries from donor, public and private sector to share experiences. This report summarizes the main issues discussed during the conference, of which the main focus was seeking to bring about systemic change for larger-scale sustainable inclusive markets with a wider significance.
This annual report provides more detail of the strategic position choices SNV made in East and Southern Africa in 2007 and illustrates our approach with case studies from our practice.
This report gives an overview of SNV’s proceedings in the edible oilseeds sector in Tanzania, from 2007 to 2010. Interventions aimed at increasing income for at least 80,000 smallholder households to derive a higher income from oilseeds production or related activities by 2010. To that effect key interventions included: Producer Group Strengthening, Market Intelligence and facilitating Value Chain Financing.
