It will provide an opportunity to evaluate the trade potential between West African and Maghreb countries, in both pineapple and related green agriculture technologies. Experimenting with a highly focused market-driven approach, the project will also concentrate on strengthening the pineapple supply chain in one selected sub-Saharan African country (Benin), by increasing cooperatives' and SMEs' access to finance and appropriate use of innovative information and communication technologies (ICTs). The project will put special emphasis on supporting women business enterprises (WBEs).
