Aims & Objectives

The project aims to increase the incomes of at least 200,000 value chain actors, especially smallholder farmers and processors in Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda and Malawi, by at least USD177 million in five years. This will be achieved through stimulating sales of more than two million tons of cassava into HQCF and other cassava product value chains.

What We Do

CAVA II works across the value-added cassava chain, specifically focusing on a number of bottlenecks that have slowed growth and progress from previous projects: This project works directly with farmers to improve profitability of cassava sales, both through the pull of market demand and through increasing farmer yields with improved stems (working with commercial cassava seeds system grants supported by the Foundation).
