  Ajira Yako       Saturday, 9 June 2018



Governance and innovation for strengthening the sisal and rice value chain is the project that is
implemented by Oxfam in Tanzania and funded by Oxfam Hong Kong. Overall aim of the project
is to improve gender equity and sustainable income for smallholder farmers throughout the sisal
and rice value chain in 6 districts in the Shinyanga, Simiyu and Geita regions of Tanzania.
Specifically the project intends to strengthen the institutional capacity of market associations at
the district and national levels to become profitable, well-governed and transparent enterprises,
enhance smallholder farmers’ capacity to participate in local and national dialogue to strengthen
governance and accountability practices in the sisal and rice value chains and support smallholder
farmers to identify and pilot the adoption of innovative farming approaches and new technologies
and processes based on the local context for use in primary production and up and downstream
economic activities.
Rice and sisal value chains provide an opportunity to support smallholder farmers to access
sustainable income and improve gender equality. Given the climate change catastrophe in project
sites which is mostly associated with uneven rainfall distribution across the season, farming
season becomes unpredictable due to shortage of rainfall. However, to respond to climate change
impact, Small holder’s farmers employed a number of adaptive and resilient strategies for coping
mechanism, among others include: construction of shallow well for rainwater harvesting and
utilization of drought tolerant seeds. Further small holders’ farmers established 17 demonstration
plots using modern farming. While in sisal value chain climate resilient initiatives includes sisal
inter-crop farming and spacing.
