Eastern Africa Grain Council (EAGC)
We performed a Value Chain Analysis which saw the implementation of
a dairy-based sustainable agriculture land management (SALM) project
that reached 15,000 farmers. In addition, EAMDA undertook surveys of
farmer cooperatives across the Mt. Elgon region.
The firm facilitated the development of the 2013 – 2017 business plan for the grain sector membership organization
EAMDA facilitated the organization’s 2018 – 2022 strategic plan as well as a scoping study for a grain intervention focused on the Council’s 10 member countries.
EAMDA is currently working with EAGC to develop organization’s 2022 – 2027 strategic plan following a detailed assessment of the impact, successes and learnings emanating from EAGC’s two-year intervention on Improving Compliance with Maize Quality Standards along Trade Corridors in East Africa”.
EAMDA conducted a baseline survey on regional grain traders in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda with a view to assess volumes and value of interregional trade.
EAMDA conducted a Political Economy Analysis (PEA) that provided insights into the current structure and operations of open-air food markets taking into consideration factors that influence resourcing, power relations, convergence of different stakeholders, incentives and drivers of change. This was to inform on the establishment of Smart Markets for the future in Kenya that incorporate green energy solutions, waste and water management and sustainable business models.
EAMDA carried out an assessment of the impact, successes and learnings emanating from EAGC’s two- year intervention on Improving Compliance with Maize Quality Standards along Trade Corridors in East Africa”. The project findings of the assessment
were used to inform future programming on quality compliance and food safety, particularly the challenges associated with the low level of compliance with the harmonized East African Grain Standards specifically by maize value chain players in
Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya.
