Dairy Development Forum established to further more inclusive dairy development in Tanzania

Last month, the Tanzania Dairy Board (TDB), Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA), International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), Heifer Project International (HPI), SNV – The Netherlands Development Organisation, Land O’Lakes, Inc., and the Tanzania Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries Development (MLDF) organized a national dairy stakeholders’ meeting to present the Dairy Development Forum (DDF).

The DDF grew out of the recognition that Tanzania’s dairy development potential can be further harnessed through concerted collaborative partnerships of different players. DDF is intended to be a coordination platform to facilitate such collaboration.

It is envisaged that DDF will promote:

  • A more inclusive orientation in public and private investments in the dairy sector
  • Professionalization and best practices in the dairy sector
  • Information and knowledge sharing including, convening as an innovation platform to address systemic bottlenecks and co-create solutions in the dairy sector at national and milk-shed levels
