IFAD Implementation Support Mission is in Rwanda

IFAD Implementation Support Mission (ISM) is in Rwanda from 29th May to 9th June 2017, For the Project for Rural Income through Exports (PRICE).

PRICE project aims to achieve sustainable increased returns to farmers from key export-driven agricultural value chains through: (i) increased volumes and quality of production; (ii) improved marketing; and (iii) effective farmer organisations. The Project was declared effective on 20 December 2011 and the completion and closing dates are due on 31 December 2018 and 30 June 2019, respectively.

The objective of the mission intends to consolidate viable and sustainable inclusive business models in the coffee, tea, sericulture and horticulture value chains. The objective is to support the creation and/or development of institutions, mechanisms and capacities able to continue on their own after project completion. It is also aimed at enabling NAEB/MINAGRI to take the project a step forward in supporting the brokering of formal public-private-producer partnerships (4P) models, involving farmer cooperatives and private sector partners operating in the targeted value chains.

IFAD team is led by Francisco Pichon Country Programme Manager and is composed of:

Charles Bucagu, Coffee value chain specialist, IFAD Consultant

David Maina, Tea value chain specialist, IFAD Consultant

Isabelle Lagaillarde, Horticulture value chain specialist, IFAD Consultant
