Feed the Future Mozambique Agricultural Innovations Activity (FTF Inova) seeks to increase equitable, pro-poor agricultural growth by linking private and public actors to create more effective value chains in high-priority sectors. 

Intervention description

This value chain analysis was carried out to generate an initial strategy for interventions that would:

  • yield short term results
  • test critical assumptions about the evolving market system dynamics through direct engagement with market actors
  • allow FTF Inova’s team to develop its longer-term strategy and activity design

Evidence methodology

The research and analysis process was iterative, beginning with a review of the literature related to the eight targeted value chains.

After desk research, the assessment team conducted key stakeholder meetings with

  • agro-dealers and input suppliers
  • farmer cooperatives in select value chains
  • emerging and contract farmers
  • commercial farmers
  • certified GlobalGAP consultants
  • retailers, supermarkets, agro-processors/pack houses and exporters
  • agri-investors
  • key host government staff
  • a wide range of development partners supporting the Mozambican agriculture sector including donors, implementing partners, and local Non- Governmental Organisations (NGOs)
