Lessons Learned from IFAD Green Technologies Project
SunDanzer’s goal is to develop commercially viable solar cooling products that can be sold, without subsidy, into the East/Southern African Dairy, Fish, or Agriculture supply chains.
SunDanzer, through the IFAD Green Technologies Project, has been working to strengthen the capacities of smallholder producers to contribute to food security and nutrition by sustainably reducing post-harvest losses while enhancing market opportunities for their produce.
The Program commenced in June 2018 and will run until March 2023, covering five target countries: Rwanda, Mozambique, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Tanzania. SunDanzer’s goal is to develop one or more commercially viable solar cooling products which can be sold, without subsidy, into the East/Southern African Dairy, Fish, or Agriculture supply chains.
