Investigation of current trends and issues in the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Rwanda and Tanzania
Promar completed field research on agriculture, forestry and fisheries in Rwanda and Tanzania in late 2011 as part of a project for the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
The purpose of these studies was to provide background for designing aid and technical assistance projects in agricultural development in sub-Saharan Africa, as well as inform private sector investment and business ventures. Because each country and region in sub-Saharan Africa has significant differences in natural environment as well as in socio-economics, politics and culture, in order to provide effective and efficient assistance, MAFF recognized that it is absolutely essential to have the most current information on the agricultural conditions and the major challenges facing the individual countries and the regions within them. Therefore MAFF has been supporting the collection and analysis of information related to the overall agricultural sectors in various sub-Saharan African countries.
