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.
