Capacity Development for Agricultural Innovation Systems (CDAIS)

Emmanuel Mahoro, Managing Director of a Rwandan dairy plant reports: "Our processing plant immediately had problems after the opening, as there was no organized supply chain. But things improved when everyone involved began to meet thanks to CDAIS".

Agriculture is Rwanda’s second biggest industry, after tourism. In order to improve the agribusiness environment for smallholder farmers working in cassava, dairy and crop intensification, CDAIS provides capacity building, partnership development and promotion of innovations in this sector, which Emmanuel Mahoro and his employees have benefitted from. 

Stakeholders are able to improve their value chain management and face future challenges together. Within this project SPARK provides training of trainers (ToTs) on coaching skills, access to markets, entrepreneurship and advocacy, and organises capacity development and learning events.
