Unloading Crops In Tanzania

FSP in Tanzania works toward the Agricultural Sector Policy and Institutional Reform Strengthening (ASPIRES) project. Its goal is to accelerate Tanzania’s adoption of more effective policies and programs to drive broad-based agricultural sector growth, improve household food security and nutrition, and reduce poverty.

Tanzania has achieved rapid economic growth over the past decade.  Yet smallholder farmer productivity remains low, and rural poverty, malnutrition, and inequality remain pervasive. Key contributors to this situation are under-provision of basic public goods; an unpredictable policy environment; and limited voice for private sector and civil society in the policy-making process.  Redressing these problems is necessary to create an enabling environment for inclusive, broad-based, and sustained agricultural sector growth.
