SNV is a not-for-profit international development organisation. Founded in the Netherlands 50 years ago, we have built a long-term, local presence in 39 of the poorest countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Our global team of local and international advisors works with local partners to equip communities, businesses and organisations with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic services – empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own development.
SNV has worked in Tanzania since the 1971 and currently has offices in Dar es Salaam, Mwanza, Arusha, Dodoma, Mbeya, and Kigoma. In alignment with our Corporate Strategy, SNV Tanzania focuses on three sectors namely Agriculture, Renewable Energy, and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).
Overview of the Project:
SNV signed a contract with the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS) to implement a 5-year project, branded as Climate Resilient Agribusiness for Tomorrow (CRAFT), in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. SNV, in collaboration with the other consortium partners (Wageningen University & Research, CGIAR’s Climate Change, Agriculture & Food Security programme-CCAFS, Agriterra and Rabo Partnerships), as well as supply chain partners in several targeted agricultural value chains will promote climate smart agriculture (CSA) as a way to transform and reorient agricultural systems to the new realities of climate change.
The project will apply an inclusive business development approach for CSA, focusing on arable farming systems in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. CRAFT project aims for improved food security by working towards climate resilient farming systems which increase productivity under changing climatic circumstances, while reducing food waste and losses throughout the supply chain.
The project will deliver sustainable impact in the following areas:
- Productive capacity and income increased for 300,000 smallholder farmers;
- Business performance improved for 50 agribusiness SMEs and 30 cooperatives for climate-proof value chains;
- Climate resilient sustainable food production practiced on 600,000 hectares
The implementation strategy of the CRAFT project is based on complementary interventions at three levels: (a) farming systems, (b) inclusive value chains, and (c) the enabling environment. Technical assistance and interventions meant to target project stakeholders (farmers, SMEs, cooperatives, private sector, financial institutions, government agencies, etc.) at these different levels will be done through five different work streams that will guide the implementation process to achieve the expected results at output, outcome and impact level. These work streams include:
- CSA practices and technologies for resilient farming systems and SMEs
- Climate smart investment in inclusive value chains
- Enabling environment for development and scaling of CSA
- Learning and knowledge sharing (cross-cutting)
- Gender and youth inclusion (cross-cutting)
The cross-cutting work stream for gender and youth inclusion will emphasise targeted interventions where needed to ensure equity and inclusion through gender sensitive service provision, promotion of household/group dialogues on gender labour division and income-related decision making, as well as targeted support to women- and youth-led companies and leadership.
