Context

It is a support to the interprofessions of the mango sector. The objective is for the sectoral inter-professions in the target countries to achieve regional coordination to effectively address a wide range of challenges in the mango sector. One of the outcomes of the project is based on strengthening the existing sector associations in the three countries and supporting the organizations to achieve regional coordination. The mango sector faces several obstacles that are not easily overcome by individual companies. 

Methodology / Approach

In order to initiate a transformation to more sustainable and inclusive sectors, the apex sector associations in each country will be supported and mentored to effectively address a wide range of sectoral challenges. This requires a solid country strategy, as well as adequate data collection, data analysis, marketing efforts, and lobbying capabilities. AGRODEV provides coaching and logistics. To this end, a dynamic team has been put in place as well as equipment and rolling stock to facilitate the achievement of project results.

Achievements / Results

AGRODEV plays a key role in this project. Indeed, the success of this project requires a good knowledge and a solid experience in the mango sector. Therefore, the firm has contributed to identify the mango actors (APROMAB) and facilitate the international missions. The beneficiaries of this project will see their market developed through access to regional and international markets.
