Building Technical and Financial Synergy in the Shea Sector
Donors in the shea sector convened in April to build the necessary synergy of actions and avoid duplication.
The shea sector is becoming more and more important in Benin and fits more in the portfolios of many donors. But this growing interest in the sector must be managed in an integrated way for efficiency. It is therefore to build the necessary synergy of actions and avoid duplication and overlap in the interventions, that shea sector donors (ICCO, GIZ, USADF, IRC, Hunger Project, PARASEP, AGK) met from April 16 to 17, 2019 in Parakou to present their programs of activities of 2019 and identified points of synergy. This donors’ meeting contributed yield for AKB a coherent work plan free of duplication and overlap.
This workshop was followed by another big event: the official launch ceremony of the shea marketing campaign in Benin for the year 2019. It was a solemn occasion that brought together the groups of collectors, processors, industries, donors and the Beninese authorities. It was Thursday, April 18, 2019.
