Présentation
The Bilateral Ethiopian-Netherlands Effort for Food, Income and Trade Partnership - BENEFIT Partnership, aims to improve sustainable food, income and trade among rural households in Ethiopia. What is meant by ‘improved food’ refers not only to quantity, but also quality, including nutritional value. Furthermore, the project aims to improve the practice of food production and trade. In doing so, it focuses on sustainability and the inclusion of disadvantaged groups in society, such as women smallholders.
The BENEFIT Partnership unites the four following agricultural development projects : The Integrated Seed Sector Development in Ethiopia (ISSD Ethiopia) project, which supports the development of a vibrant, pluralistic and market oriented seed sector in the country ; The Capacity building for scaling up of evidence-based best practices in agricultural production (CASCAPE) project, which improves agricultural productivity through promoting evidence-based best agricultural practices ; The Ethiopian-Netherlands Trade Facility for Agribusiness (ENTAG), which supports private sector development and trade in Ethiopia ; The Sesame Business Network (SBN) support project, which supports stakeholders of the SBN in developing competitive, sustainable and inclusive sesame value chains in Ethiopia.
The BENEFIT Partnership coordination unit will provide leadership and support to the four projects in the areas of project coordination and management, financial control, monitoring and evaluation, gender and nutrition.
