NEADAP brings together relevant dairy actors in East Africa around the key themes of milk quality, forage and inclusive business models. It aims to promote uptake of interventions and good practices by East African and Dutch stakeholders, and to generate evidence-based recommendations for Dutch and East African policy development for effective support of dairy development.

Dairy development

NEADAP is unique in its structure and vision as it proposes to galvanise the experience from a significant number of dairy projects, in order to identify the challenges and priorities in developing the dairy sector in the region. The focus countries are Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, with a potential inclusion of Rwanda and Tanzania for learning and knowledge sharing. With a closing date of December 2019 the project is currently in the inception phase which ends in December 2018. This phase will deliver the first scans of potential learning experiences and upscaling opportunities of successful interventions in each of the themes.

Dutch consortium

The project is a consortium of SNV Netherlands Development Organisation, Wageningen University & Research, Bles Dairies Consultancy BV (formerly The Friesian) and Agriterra. NEADAP is funded by the Embassy of The Kingdom of the Netherlands in Uganda with an overall budget of € 750,000.
