About the Hub

FoodTrade East and Southern Africa (FoodTrade ESA) is a five year trade enhancement and promotion programme, with a focus on staple food crops. Funded by the UK Government and implemented by DAI, FoodTrade ESA operates in nine East and Southern African countries Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe and works with the private sector and relevant institutions to improve storage, inputs and service markets, information and coordination mechanisms and policy and regulation with the aim to get more people trading in regional staple food markets.

In its vision “To embrace a world class knowledge-sharing ethos that addresses regional staple food markets constraints by making information creation, collection, and dissemination the corner stone for effective change,” the Knowledge Hub provides an interactive platform among FoodTrade ESA stakeholders and other users to access and share up to date information, results and best practices from FoodTrade ESA investments and other programmes and projects in agricultural trade, policy reforms and regional staples value chains in a bid to promote knowledge sharing and learning.
