Transforming Africa’s Agriculture & Food Security:
Perspectives on Competitiveness and Sustainability from Mozambique’s Public and Private Sector Leaders
Over the past four years, with support from USAID and USDA, TechnoServe has been working with local stakeholders to revitalize the Mozambique poultry sector by getting the right policies and technical support for integrating best practices in biosecurity and food safety while improving farm incomes. The program has helped increase smallholder farmers’ income and grow the feed grain industry from $15 million a year in 2004 to approximately $65 million a year in 2009, creating expanded markets for tens of thousands of small-scale producers. Jake Walter, TechnoServe Country Director for Mozambique and senior Mozambican public and private sector leaders supporting industry growth will share how the sector has been transformed, their learning with Cargill and SSAFE on models for enhanced public/private collaboration to support industry competitiveness, and what are the lessons for creating profitable US-Africa public-private sector partnerships.
