The new project will build on work already conducted over the past seven years by the Irish Eritrea Partnership (Teagasc and Vita) on the Dairy Value Chain and will be guided by CMA principles. The focus will be on three key objectives: (i) new innovations on smallholder farms with a focus on the contribution of dairy livestock and (ii) strengthening of research, education and innovation support capacity in Eritrea; (iii) new initiatives in relation to youth employment.
