Strengthening the pineapple export value chain in selected West African countries
The project aims at increasing the participation of SMEs from a selection of African countries in South-South trade and cooperation, with a focus on the pineapple sector. It will provide an opportunity to evaluate the trade potential between West African and Maghreb countries, in both pineapple and related green agriculture technologies. Experimenting with a highly focused market-driven approach, the project will also concentrate on strengthening the pineapple supply chain in one selected sub-Saharan African country (Benin), by increasing cooperatives’ and SMEs' access to finance and appropriate use of innovative information and communication technologies (ICTs). The project will put special emphasis on supporting women business enterprises (WBEs).
