STDF and the private sector: partnering to deliver SPS outcomes
Worldwide, STDF projects are building the private sector's capacity to implement SPS measures and take advantage of trade opportunities. Find out how STDF projects contribute to private sector development, which plays a key role in commercializing agriculture, generating economic growth and creating employment.
The private sector contributes to STDF projects as implementing agencies, providers of finance, expertise or other resources, and intermediaries linking up small-scale producers and other value chain stakeholders. The private sector (including micro, small and medium-sized enterprises) also benefits from STDF projects. Highlights include:
  • In Sri Lanka, the Spice Council, the apex body representing industry, was a core partner in an STDF/UNIDO project to enhance the productive capacities and competitiveness of the cinnamon value chain and increase exports to high-end markets.
  • In Senegal, the Association des Unions Maraich√®res des Niayes (AUMN) implemented an STDF project that drove improvements in cabbage safety and quality, developed the value chain and expanded exports to regional markets.
  • In Africa, ASEAN and Latin America, global pesticide manufacturers and plant science industry associations partnered in projects supported by STDF, USDA, FAO and others to strengthen capacity to meet pesticide-related export requirements for minor use crops and facilitate trade.
