AGRI-CONNECT Strategic Alignment
Agriculture remains central to Tanzania’s industrialization drive as articulated in the Government’s Five Year Development Plan and the recently adopted Agricultural Sector Development Plan Phase Two- ASDP II and the Zanzibar Agricultural Sector Development Programme (ZASDP). An increase in agricultural productivity will form the basis of the country’s industrialization push and employment creation. AGRI-CONNECT is fully aligned with the Government’s priorities as outlined in ASDP II and the ZASDP.
AGRI-CONNECT is founded on 6 guiding principles
1. Behaviour change for good nutrition practices
2. Improving production, processing and marketing
They stand to greatly benefit particularly from developments in the horticulture, coffee and tea sectors, with the potential to attract industry which will boost employment, reduce imports and generate foreign investments in Tanzania.
