Summary

Blueprint to address low productivity

In 2011, the government of Tanzania, with public and private sector partners, developed a ‘Blueprint’ for accelerating agricultural development in the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania (SAGCOT), a 300,000 square kilometer region currently troubled by low productivity, low levels of investment, and high rates of poverty. To ensure that the development strategy fully incorporates the needs of smallholder farmers, as well as the valuable environmental assets of the Corridor, the strategy was further refined in a companion ‘Greenprint’ framework for Agriculture Green Growth (AGG) produced in early 2013.
