From 20 to 24 June, Fair & Sustainable Consulting (F&S) gave a training in Kindia (Guinea) for all companies and organizations that are involved in the mango value chain. F&S was invited by the Belgian Development Agency (ENABEL) to give this training. The training is part of their Agricultural Entrepreneurship program, that aims to improve the competitiveness of entrepreneurs in the mango sector in an inclusive and sustainable way.
During the training, main actors involved in the mango sector were trained to gain a common comprehension of ways to analyse and develop the mango sector. The thirty training participants were divided in three sub-groups who all focused on another market: exports of fresh mango to neighbouring countries, exports of fresh mango to the EU, and dried mango for the domestic market.
The three groups mapped and analysed their value chain, defined a vision for development of their chain, and identified priority actions to be implemented. At the end of the week each group made an action plan with sustainable solution for the development of the sector.
