Strategic partnership coordination

On behalf of the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT), we coordinated the strategic partnership between SNV and KIT. The objective of this institutional collaboration was to generate leads for innovative approaches in agricultural development. The partnership raised the profile and increased the competitiveness of both organisations. As part of the partnership, we coordinated the production of knowledge kits on (1) Market based input supplies, (2) Gender and youth in value chains, (3) Gender and household nutrition security, (4) Food security and social impact, and (5) Labour smart agriculture. Each knowledge kit consisted of a background paper (see example on this page), tools, approaches and user guidelines.
