Impact Partners and Networks
Research impact is a core pillar of the project. To facilitate this, we partner with several in-country grass-root level organisations and citizen groups that bring expertise from development practice. These partnerships enable us to diversify our methodologies, co-produce knowledge with urban and peri-urban farmers, engage multiple stakeholders, and scale our findings. The project partners with one practitioner group - TAHA, Dar es Salaam.
