Feed the Future Tanzania Nafaka

Speeches Shim

Rice and maize are important staple crops in Tanzania, produced primarily by small-scale farmers. Feed the Future Tanzania Nafaka (“grain” in Kiswahili) encourages the successful adoption of improved technologies and agricultural practices that improve productivity, competitiveness, and nutrition for targeted smallholders. This includes improved post-harvest handling and production and stimulating demand for fortified maize flour. Investment approaches across the activity will improve the nutritional status of Tanzanians, especially women and children; expand opportunities for benefits and participation by women, youth, and vulnerable groups, and; develop local capacity for sustaining and scaling innovation and benefits.
