Our partners

 

SSAB cooperates with more than 50 partners from the public and private sector. These contribute significantly to the success of the programme with their cash and in-kind contributions. For example, public partners provide for trainers to implement training activities or work with their personel on joint activities at the service of smallholder farmers in their countries. Private partners have a business interest which is bound to the development of the value chain. In the frame of the programme these two interests are aligned and implemented through joint coordinated activities.

Below you find a list of SSAB partners:
