Working Paper: Scoping Analysis-Sahel
This report explores agri-SME investment opportunity areas in five value chains in three countries of the Sahel sub-region: Burkina Faso, Niger and Senegal. The document presents opportunities for collaborative action to be explored by relevant SAFIN partners, such as in expanding contract farming and establishing storage facilities for onion production in Niger. It also describes investment opportunities in processing activities for indigenous cereals in Niger and mangoes in Senegal. In Burkina Faso, the highlighted opportunities include improving access to inputs for farmers active in the fruit and vegetable value chain, as well as considering innovative approaches to connect producers and agri-traders more efficiently in the maize value chain.
