CIALCA receives new funding from Belgium

"Evaluations have shown that farmers who work with CIALCA fare better financially"

CIALCA's 2017-20 research programme on private sector development and agricultural innovation has received funding from the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation. The research agenda ‘Policy, Institutions and Markets’ focusses on rural transformation and how it can contribute to inclusive growth. It examines the most cost-efficient ways to invest in agriculture, in collaboration with the private sector, and how these investments can create opportunities for small farmers, particularly women and youth . It also aims at intensifying collaboration between Belgian and local centers of expertise.

Announcing the new tranche of funding in a press release, the Ministry states that 'evaluations have shown that farmers who work with CIALCA fare better financially'. It expects CIALCA to get even more involved in supporting private-sector initiatives in agriculture, in diversity that contributes to sustainable food security and in innovation.
