DCED Case Study of the African Cashew Initiative: Lessons from working with new and multiple partners in Ghana

The African Cashew Initiative (ACi) is a multi-country programme that is pioneering a formalised co-funding and implementation structure with various public and private partners and development organisations. It offers valuable lessons from managing multi-stakeholder partnerships, and collaboration between more ‘traditional’ development organisations and new donors like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Further, the ACi’s evolving approach to results measurement, and the challenges and opportunities encountered in integrating African smallholders into global value chains offer interesting insights.
