The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) and Mtandao wa Vikundi vya Wakulima Tanzania (MVIWATA) are together conducting a mapping of territorial markets at Kibaigwa market, Kongwa District in Dodoma region, Nyandira Market, Mvomero District in Morogoro region and at Kinyasini market in North region, Zanzibar.
Despite an increasing awareness about the fact that smallholder farmers are responsible for most of the food consumed in the world and most of the investments made in agriculture, there is still lack of data about territorial markets, thus resulting in public policies that give a lot of attention to global value chains while seldom supporting and incentivizing these markets.
To undertake this activity MVIWATA in partnership with FAO will conduct a number of activities including;
a). Pilot test the methodology for mapping of territorial markets in 3 selected markets.
b). Data collection in the three selected markets.
c). To carry out one survey to at least 100 vulnerable MVIWATA members to identify bottlenecks hindering the participation to marketing.
d). To analyse the data collected.
e). To write a report and carry out an advocacy workshop to disseminate the report.637 views
