Summary
For smallholder producers at risk of losing their markets, Dairy Modernisation and Market Access Project (DiMMA) equips them with the know-how and technologies to upgrade their milk production systems, adopt food safety standards, and comply with food hygiene regulations. It improves the productivity of dairy animals through better nutrition, veterinary care and breed improvement activities. It also reduces the vulnerability of pastures to the effects of climate change by supporting improved management practices and climate change mitigation/adaptation measures, and strengthens dairy cooperatives through capacity-building measures and by involving them in dairy business development.
Components and Objectives
DiMMA has three inter-related components:
Component 1: Dairy value chain development. It aims at developing dairy value chain innovations and capacities, supporting milk production and milk safety, and improving marketing and profitability of target households.
Component 2: Institutional and organisational development. It aims at addressing localised challenges, which constraint production and marketing, brought about by weak institutions and promoting dialogue between dairy sector stakeholders.
Component 3: Project management.
