[edit | edit source]

Introduction
From 11 to 25 August 2020, the Africa RISING- NAFAKA project conducted close-out meetings in districts where the project has been ongoing. The districts include Momba and Mbozi in Songwe region, Wangi’ngombe in Njombe region, Mufindi, Kilolo and Iringa rural in Iringa region, and Kilombero in Morogoro region.
The objective of the meeting was to bring together actors from the Districts to discuss and agree on strategies for the sustainability of the initiatives and technologies after closure.
At the meetings, members discussed achievements challenges, and then the strategies for sustainability. Participants included the DAICOs, DEDs, TAICOs, DCDOs, TARI staff from participating centers of Uyole, Hombolo and Dakawa, IITA staff, NAFAKA staff, and TOSCI. We present a general summary of commitments and actions and then the district level commitments (each district)

Summary of actions and commitments

  • Introduction and promotion of improved and resilient varieties and postharvest management technologies
  1. Action: Market awareness and continued training of the QDS producers.
  2. Action: TARI to continue ensuring the availability of basic seeds (rice, beans, other legumes in the rice-producing areas (peas, chickpeas, green gram).
  3. Action: NAFAKA to continue strengthening the VBAA model such that farmers gain access to quality input from input companies.
  4. Action: QDS producers’ associations should be strengthened further (those formed) and new ones formed to ensure that QDS producers have a voice through which they can access services such as inspection, market lobbying, timely seed access from TARI, and mobilizing financial resources through SACCOs.
  5. Action: Need to monitor local artisans trained by the project to ensure that they provide services to the community.
  • Promotion of climate-smart agriculture (CSA) practices to improve crop productivity, resilience -and protect land, water, and biodiversity
  1. Action: Training manuals, calendars, and a compendium of maps indicating recommendation domains have been developed by the project. These should be made available to different partners for use in their activities
  2. Action: NAFAKA project will continue working with the private sector to set up demos and the districts and TARI should continue supporting training activities for farmers
  • Monitoring technology spread, adoption, and use of disseminated technologies
  1. Action: NAFAKA will continue to support the districts (together with VAEOs ) to identify areas suitable for the new demonstration plots and provide technical assistance to the QDS producers/ district when needed.
  2. Action: TARI/ TOSCI to continue providing technical support on QDS production
  3. Action: The list of all the QDS producers and their contacts details to be submitted to the districts such that they are easily accessible when their services are needed
  • ICT integration for technology dissemination and behavior change communication
  1. Action: The project has developed a platform (Mwanga IT platform) that should continue to be used. TARI Uyole and NAFAKA will liaise with TARI HQ for its scaling up
  2. Action: TOSCI is using other IT tools, some developed in partnership with IITA (such as seed tracker) and these will be of benefit to the QDS producers.
  • Youth and women involvement
  1. Action: Youth and women were deliberately selected by the project to engage in productive activities such as spray teams (only male youth), local artisans for postharvest machinery, VBAAs (led by NAFAKA but jointly implemented), and QDS production. District departments (DAICO, DCDOs), TOSCI, and TARI committed to continue supporting them in their different roles to continue with the respective activities. NAFAKA project teams will follow up.
