This project, funded by the Overseas Development Administration (ODA), aims to improve rapid cassava processing methods in rural households where a need is evident. The development and adoption of appropriate processing methods will be through participatory research involving, to a high degree, those who will use the technology. The project is being undertaken in partnership with the Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre, as lead collaborator; Regional Agriculture and Livestock Development Office, Mtwara; Agricultural Research Institute Naliendele, Mtwara; and Rural Integrated Project Support Programme, a FINNIDA funded project in Mtwara and Lindi. This participatory rural appraisal (PRA) study included eight villages in two districts of Southern Tanzania and aimed to: (1) obtain an inventory of existing traditional processing methods; (2) document information on farmers and processors preferences for processed products and situations that influence their choice of processing method, such as varietal preferences, storability, food safety, marketing and indigenous knowledge; (3) identify processing needs and constraints to develop improved processing methods; and (4) learn from the experiences of previous cassava processing technology transfer activities undertaken by the extension services.
