  47. 47. Main lessons & lessons<br />Development is a continuous process which requires continuous engagement new responses and involvement of new actors and service providers<br />Role of commercially oriented value chain actors can be the engine for development<br />Key areas for future development, to increase production in the Districts: <br />Regional/federal level support system<br />Supply of inputs and services and <br />Processing and marketing of products beyond the District.<br />
