Project Manager Beekeeping Value Chain Support , Tanzania

Enabel is the Belgian development agency. It implements Belgium’s governmental cooperation. The agency also implements actions for other national and international donors. With its partners in Belgium and abroad Enabel offers solutions addressing pressing global challenges: Climate Change, Urbanisation, Human Mobility, Peace and Security, Economic and Social Inequality, and Global Citizenship. With 1,500 staff, Enabel manages about 150 projects in twenty countries, in Belgium, Africa and the Middle East.

Tanzania is the second largest honey producer of Africa. Beekeeping is done mainly by smallholders using traditional methods, with apiaries often in natural forest areas. The honey sector is not only a source of food for rural people but it has become increasingly an important additional income source for beekeepers and their intermediaries.

There is an increasing local, regional and global demand of bee products. Low productivity and quality are important constraints. The national potential for production of honey and beeswax is huge but the quality is still far below international standards. There exists a big potential for exporting honey and beeswax as its demand in the world market is very high especially organic certified honey.

In Tanzania Enabel has formulated and implemented several projects related to Natural Resources Management (NRM) and the development of the beekeeping value chain. Under the 11th EDF the EU is funding the Action “Beekeeping Value Chain Support” for which a Contribution Agreement will be signed with Enabel for the indirect management of this project.

The project will improve the beekeeping value chain through enhanced quality production, value addition of bee products and strengthen trade and market access to local, regional and international markets. The project will address the challenge of more gender equity in the beekeeping value chain.

The overall objective of the project is to make sure that the beekeeping industry's contribution to inclusive economic growth in Tanzania is enhanced. Namely, quality honey produced in an environmentally sustainable manner leads to increased market penetration.

For achieving the specific objective of the project the following three expected outputs are to be realized (as indicated by the EU in the approved Action Document):
• Institutional capacity and enabling environment for beekeeping value chain actors is strengthened, while enhancing women's empowerment;
• Capacities of beekeeping value chain actors improved and management of bee reserves and apiaries enhanced;
• Market access and trade of bee products strengthened.

The project zones are the Regions of Tabora, Kigoma, Katavi, Singida, Shinyanga and Pemba Island in Tanzania.
