Agriculture constitutes an integral part of the economies of all African countries, as it contributes towards the achievement of major priorities in the continent which include among others the eradication of poverty and hunger, boosting intra-Africa trade and investments and sustainable resource and environmental management. Rwanda’s agriculture like many other African countries, is largely dependent on smallholder farmers. The Climate Resilient Post-Harvest and Agribusiness Support Project has the goal of alleviating poverty, increasing the incomes of smallholder farmers and rural labourers including women, youth and vulnerable groups and to contribute to the overall economic development in Rwanda. Thus, the need for adequate structures to be put in place for smallholder farmers in Rwanda to reduce post-harvest losses, make good profit from the sale of their produce, and increase their income.
