About Company: The Programme aims to increase rural income in its target area, which consists of nine districts in the southern highlands and Kilombero Valley. It will reduce poverty and inequality through developing sustainable plantation forestry and adding value to the entire forest product value chain, from quality seeds planted on the land to quality products sold in markets. To meet this aim, the Programme will support participatory and sustainable land use planning; facilitate organizing tree growers into Tree Growers’ Associations (TGAs); develop the capacity of tree growers; support plantation establishment and strengthen plantation management; strengthen extension and business services; and improve the production of industries, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs) within the value chain. The Programme’s innovative approaches will be evaluated and its best practices disseminated widely within the sector.
