NAFAKA II - GOAL
To develop efficient market systems that
serve large numbers of rice and maize
producers, especially targeting; women
and youth and lead to successful
adoption at a scale; improved
technologies and agricultural practices,
overall system productivity
competitiveness and improved nutrition
for large numbers of rice and maize small
holders.
3
ISSUES HOLDING BACK CEREALS MARKETING
SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT (CMSD)
• Weak links at the input retail and produce offtake purchase point closest
to farmers holding back agricultural markets orientation towards small
holder farmers.
• Retailers and produce buyers are geographically distant from
smallholders, and high transaction costs make reaching smallholders
cost prohibitive.
• Years of intensive mono-crop systems with low/limited GAP adoption
has led to low yields and degraded natural resource base, limiting
farmers ability to benefit from market linkages, access to finance and
collective actions.
• Cereals production is facing increasingly labor shortages as youth are
increasingly become less interested in cereal production.

EXPECTED OUTPUTS AND OUTCOMES
• At least 144,805 households benefiting directly from USG assistance
• At least 28,900MT of fertilizer and 3,700MT of seeds sold to farmers
through VBAAs and Producer organizations
• At least 296,534 individuals who have received USG supported short –
term agricultural productivity or nutrition training
• At least 124,532 farmers and others who have applied improved
technology of management practices with USG assistance
• At least 474,332 hectares under improved technology or management
practices with USG assistance
• At least 267,972MT cereals sold by Producer organizations
• At least 25,055 micro, small and medium organizations(MSMEs)
receiving agricultural related credit as a result of USG assistance
6
KEY INTERVENTION AREAS FOR
COLLABORATION BETWEEN NAFAKA- AFRICA
RISING
• Climate smart agriculture (CSA) innovations
• Strengthening input marketing systems
• Support QDS seed production
• Reduced food waste and spoilage
• Improved household nutrition and resilience
• Capacity building for better scaling
o Behavioral Change Communication (BCC)
o Collaborative Learning and Adaptation (CLA)
o Training
• About 60 model farms established
• About 1,200 maize, Rice and common beans mother and baby demos
established
• About 20,000 individual received short-term agric. Productivity training
• About 8 drought tolerant maize varieties demonstrated
• About 2 Saline tolerant rice varieties demonstrated
• Collapsible drier case, PICS, maize shellers, rice cutters, rice threshers
technologies introduced
• About 250 VAEOs trained by the project
• About 41VBAAs and 41 Producer Organization in 92 villages received
mechanization grants from NAFAKA
• About 132 rice QDS producers in 132 villages and 120 legumes(Chick peas,
green gram, cowpeas and common beans) engaged with 162MT of rice QDS,
30MT of common beans sold to farmers with 10,00ha of rice and 400ha planted
with QDS seed
• About 8,000 PICS sold through VBAAs and Producer organizations
9
GAPS/ISSUES IN AR-NAFAKA PROJECTS
• Underdeveloped/weak systems for legumes and rice(TXD306 issue)
• Limited mechanization options for planting, weeding, soya bean threshing
• Commercialization of demonstrated mechanization technologies
• Limited focus on BDSP e.g. soil analysis services, repairs &maintenance
• Documentation of success stories, multi-stakeholder sharing & validation
• Low productivity despite seed, fertilizers, timely weeding(soil erosion? Acidity,
low %organic carbon?)
10
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 2018/2019 (SOME
FOOD FOR THOUGHT…)
• SLC/SUA Twinned Volunteers: How can Africa-RISING help to secure volunteers for
NAFAKA clients?
• Embedded VBAA Training through Hub Input Suppliers: What more can we do?
• Explore Information and Communication Technology-Based Solutions for
Improved Business Management and Extension Provision to Farmers: How
should we establish Mwangaza in Southern highlands? What are the limitations of the
existing platform lead by TiGO, YARA ARI-UYOLE. How can the private sector be
involved in these platforms?
11
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 2018/2019 (SOME
FOOD FOR THOUGHT…)
• Indirect finance through tripartite agreements: An opportunity for establishing
model farmers/farms?
• Strengthening linkages between VBAAs, agro dealers, input companies, RPOs,
Millers, Research(Africa RISING) and Financial institution: How can Africa
RISING participate in the in-depth network analysis to be conducted by NAFAKA in
July-August 2018?
• CMSD’s Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) approach in
strengthening information feedback: What more can we do to compile a
publication like the one for the mother Africa RISING?
• Disseminate optimum climate-smart, gender-sensitive, and nutrition-sensitive
production and adoption promotion strategies: Why yields are not increasing
despite adoption of GAP technologies from demo plots?
12
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 2018/2019 (SOME
FOOD FOR THOUGHT…)
• Facilitating access to alternative products that VBAAs and agro dealers sell to
cover sales gaps during the calendar year or that could provide larger per unit
margins: What products from Africa RISING can be scaled by the private sector and
VBAAs beyond our geographical Zone of Influence?
• Promote small-scale mechanization solutions, such as rotary weeders, maize
shellers, and rice threshers to reduce physical workload for female
farmers(including use of VBAAs as sales agents): What more can we do organize
B2B meetings between manufacturers, artisans, Pos, hub-agro dealers and VBAAs?
• Expanding radio-based marketing and extension messaging: What more can we
do?
• Quality Declared Seed (QDS) production and sales through VBAAs: What Role
can QDS Producer association help to ensure sustainability after NAFAKA- AR?
13
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 2018/2019 (SOME
FOOD FOR THOUGHT…)
• Embed opportunities for female and youth employment, such as crop
protection units, through VBAAs): How can we link with Ministry of Youth, labor
and Employment to formalize the SSP Program?
• Liming: Expansion in all village in Mbozi, Momba, Mufindi, Kilolo, Iringa rural and
Wangin’ombe?
• PICS: The role of collective action in reducing the price
WHAT MORE CAN WE DO TO STRENGTHEN
THESE NETWORKS?
Facilitating a Inputs Linkage process

NAFAKA 2 overview

  • 1. 7/13/2018`1 FOOTER GOES HERE 1 NAFAKA 2 OVERVIEW SILVANUS MRUMA ACDI - VOCA AFRICA RISING - NAFAKA PROJECT ANNUAL REVIEW AND PLANNING MEETING 26 – 27 JUNE 2018, DAR ES SALAAM, TANZANIA
  • 2. 7/13/2018 FOOTER GOES HERE 2 NAFAKA II - GOAL To develop efficient market systems that serve large numbers of rice and maize producers, especially targeting; women and youth and lead to successful adoption at a scale; improved technologies and agricultural practices, overall system productivity competitiveness and improved nutrition for large numbers of rice and maize small holders.
  • 3. 3 ISSUES HOLDING BACK CEREALS MARKETING SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT (CMSD) • Weak links at the input retail and produce offtake purchase point closest to farmers holding back agricultural markets orientation towards small holder farmers. • Retailers and produce buyers are geographically distant from smallholders, and high transaction costs make reaching smallholders cost prohibitive. • Years of intensive mono-crop systems with low/limited GAP adoption has led to low yields and degraded natural resource base, limiting farmers ability to benefit from market linkages, access to finance and collective actions. • Cereals production is facing increasingly labor shortages as youth are increasingly become less interested in cereal production.
  • 5. 5 EXPECTED OUTPUTS AND OUTCOMES • At least 144,805 households benefiting directly from USG assistance • At least 28,900MT of fertilizer and 3,700MT of seeds sold to farmers through VBAAs and Producer organizations • At least 296,534 individuals who have received USG supported short – term agricultural productivity or nutrition training • At least 124,532 farmers and others who have applied improved technology of management practices with USG assistance • At least 474,332 hectares under improved technology or management practices with USG assistance • At least 267,972MT cereals sold by Producer organizations • At least 25,055 micro, small and medium organizations(MSMEs) receiving agricultural related credit as a result of USG assistance
  • 6. 6 KEY INTERVENTION AREAS FOR COLLABORATION BETWEEN NAFAKA- AFRICA RISING • Climate smart agriculture (CSA) innovations • Strengthening input marketing systems • Support QDS seed production • Reduced food waste and spoilage • Improved household nutrition and resilience • Capacity building for better scaling o Behavioral Change Communication (BCC) o Collaborative Learning and Adaptation (CLA) o Training
  • 7. • About 60 model farms established • About 1,200 maize, Rice and common beans mother and baby demos established • About 20,000 individual received short-term agric. Productivity training • About 8 drought tolerant maize varieties demonstrated • About 2 Saline tolerant rice varieties demonstrated • Collapsible drier case, PICS, maize shellers, rice cutters, rice threshers technologies introduced
  • 8. • About 250 VAEOs trained by the project • About 41VBAAs and 41 Producer Organization in 92 villages received mechanization grants from NAFAKA • About 132 rice QDS producers in 132 villages and 120 legumes(Chick peas, green gram, cowpeas and common beans) engaged with 162MT of rice QDS, 30MT of common beans sold to farmers with 10,00ha of rice and 400ha planted with QDS seed • About 8,000 PICS sold through VBAAs and Producer organizations
  • 9. 9 GAPS/ISSUES IN AR-NAFAKA PROJECTS • Underdeveloped/weak systems for legumes and rice(TXD306 issue) • Limited mechanization options for planting, weeding, soya bean threshing • Commercialization of demonstrated mechanization technologies • Limited focus on BDSP e.g. soil analysis services, repairs &maintenance • Documentation of success stories, multi-stakeholder sharing & validation • Low productivity despite seed, fertilizers, timely weeding(soil erosion? Acidity, low %organic carbon?)
  • 10. 10 RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 2018/2019 (SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT…) • SLC/SUA Twinned Volunteers: How can Africa-RISING help to secure volunteers for NAFAKA clients? • Embedded VBAA Training through Hub Input Suppliers: What more can we do? • Explore Information and Communication Technology-Based Solutions for Improved Business Management and Extension Provision to Farmers: How should we establish Mwangaza in Southern highlands? What are the limitations of the existing platform lead by TiGO, YARA ARI-UYOLE. How can the private sector be involved in these platforms?
  • 11. 11 RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 2018/2019 (SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT…) • Indirect finance through tripartite agreements: An opportunity for establishing model farmers/farms? • Strengthening linkages between VBAAs, agro dealers, input companies, RPOs, Millers, Research(Africa RISING) and Financial institution: How can Africa RISING participate in the in-depth network analysis to be conducted by NAFAKA in July-August 2018? • CMSD’s Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) approach in strengthening information feedback: What more can we do to compile a publication like the one for the mother Africa RISING? • Disseminate optimum climate-smart, gender-sensitive, and nutrition-sensitive production and adoption promotion strategies: Why yields are not increasing despite adoption of GAP technologies from demo plots?
  • 12. 12 RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 2018/2019 (SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT…) • Facilitating access to alternative products that VBAAs and agro dealers sell to cover sales gaps during the calendar year or that could provide larger per unit margins: What products from Africa RISING can be scaled by the private sector and VBAAs beyond our geographical Zone of Influence? • Promote small-scale mechanization solutions, such as rotary weeders, maize shellers, and rice threshers to reduce physical workload for female farmers(including use of VBAAs as sales agents): What more can we do organize B2B meetings between manufacturers, artisans, Pos, hub-agro dealers and VBAAs? • Expanding radio-based marketing and extension messaging: What more can we do? • Quality Declared Seed (QDS) production and sales through VBAAs: What Role can QDS Producer association help to ensure sustainability after NAFAKA- AR?
  • 13. 13 RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 2018/2019 (SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT…) • Embed opportunities for female and youth employment, such as crop protection units, through VBAAs): How can we link with Ministry of Youth, labor and Employment to formalize the SSP Program? • Liming: Expansion in all village in Mbozi, Momba, Mufindi, Kilolo, Iringa rural and Wangin’ombe? • PICS: The role of collective action in reducing the price
  • 14. WHAT MORE CAN WE DO TO STRENGTHEN THESE NETWORKS? Facilitating a Inputs Linkage process
