The Agroforestry Technical Assistance Facility (ATAF) was created by Moringa Partnership to provide technical assistance in relation to investments of the Fund with the goal to amplify and upscale positive environmental and social impacts triggered through Moringa investments. ATAF is a grant based mechanism parallel to the investment of the Moringa Fund.
ATAF’s vision is to become an unique and innovative tool to remove the barriers to the development of viable agroforestry systems and the inclusion of smallholders in pioneering outgrowing scheme.
By providing farmers with access to training, supporting innovative research and development programs and by assisting commercial initiatives, ATAF will create an enabling environment to increase the resilience of farmers and landscapes in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa.
•Capacity building of the investees, outgrowers and other smallholder farmers and vulnerable communities located in the vicinity of the operation area;
•Studies to foster the valorisation of new products or by-products that improve revenue diversification and encourage circular economy;
•Studies and demonstration plots to increase knowledge, adapt agroforestry models and disseminate agroforestry amongst producers;
•Support activities to comply with Moringa’s Environmental Social Governance Management Standards.
