What are the African Cashew Initiative’s (ACi’s) principles and delivery mechanism, how do these lead to general project success, and which can be transferred to other value chains? How do producers and processors benefit from a changing power relationship in a demand-driven market set-up and how does the project support this? “How to Implement a Broad-Based Approach to Developing the Africa Cashew Market” examines these questions in terms of ACi’s implementation.

How can strategies and technologies be developed to provide poor people in remote areas with sustainable access to modern energy? This case study contrasts three interventions—in Kenya, Mali, and Mozambique— in order to learn from their successes and failures. It shows how projects were scaled up when results were positive and cut back when they failed to meet expectations.
