USAID and eight other organizations, the Maize Alliance, signed an agreement today to provide an integrated bundle of services to smallholder maize farmers in Ethiopia. While substantial investments from the government and development partners are being made, an integrated approach is necessary to unlock the potential in the maize value chain. This new alliance will assist maize farmers with a secure commercial market, access to finance, post-harvest handling and storage services, and efficient aggregation and commercialization services through farmers’ cooperative unions.

The attainment of these goals is to a very large extent, dependent upon the development of policies and systems that encourage resiliency and adaptation to climate changes, private-sector participation and investment, good and transparent governance, and none of these can happen without secure land tenure and property rights.
