The Malawi Oilseed Sector Transformation (MOST) programme aims to reduce poverty by facilitating changes in the cotton, groundnut, soybean and sunflower markets using a market systems approach. 

It aims to increase the incomes of at least 58,500 poor smallholder producers and entrepreneurs, at least 50 per cent of whom should be women, by August 2017.

Intervention description

This annual report synthesises project results and learning in the year 2015-2016. In each market system MOST has identified priority constraints and designed interventions to address these constraints.

Evidence methodology

Data is aggregated from all MOST interventions.

The results measurement system for the soybean sector of the project was assessed using the DCED Standard for measuring results.
