By enhancing communities’ ability to sustainably improve production, improve the global supply chain, and decrease food losses and waste we can help create healthier societies and economies.

Value-chain development for traditional African vegetables

Australia Awards in Africa alumna, Meab Mdimi, works for an agribusiness non-government organisation in Tanzania. Since completing the short course, she has worked with farmers to help build their capacity and linkages to market and value-chain. Meab said value-chain principals are crucial to the performance of Africa’s economy and, if expertly coordinated, can benefit all stakeholders – from farmers to consumers. After recently being awarded a UQ PhD scholarship, Meab will continue to research nutrition and value-chain development for traditional African vegetables.
