ASHC defines the four roles carried out by partners as:

  • Knowledge partners (K) with proven technologies, or practices, to share
  • Research partners (R) that work with the team to learn lessons and assess outcomes
  • Input partners (I) that are keen to establish sustainable supply chains for the required inputs – usually private sector
  • Delivery partners (D) using different media and/or interpersonal approaches to reach farmers

Note: N2Africa has an established network of formalized partnerships partners in Ghana which spans NGO-Value Chain actors and private sector chain actors. This network provides a link with major value chain initiatives in both countries. It has been established through previous and ongoing projects and programmes but now forms part of GALA.
