Key Project Information
The Technologies for African Transformation (TAAT) is an initiative of the African Development Bank under its agricultural transformation agenda also known as the Feed Africa Strategy. TAAT is essentially a knowledge- and innovation-based response to the recognized need for scaling up proven technologies across Africa aiming to boost productivity, and to make Africa self-sufficient in key commodities. The OFSP Commodity Technology Delivery Compact (CTDC) will include a range of private sector partners and public-sector extension services to deliver technologies, training, and access to services to stakeholders along the OFSP value chain, from production to processing and marketing. International Potato Center (CIP) will lead the OFSP CTDC in partnership with NARES and will work with Farmers and farmer groups, vine multipliers, Processors, Development Agencies (NGOs), Other TAAT COMPACTs among others in 12 implementing countries.
