N/A 

The AMEA toolbox: SCOPEinsight tool and M4 tool to analyse cooperative perfromance. Addtionally, using trainers and coaches for remote access to and effective monitoring of cooperatives. 

Ag Tech: through use of digital platforms for provision of agro-inputs, tillage services and market information through e-vouchers.  LWF is also currently piloting the digitalization of Village Savings and Loans Associations. We would like to leverage use of digital platforms so as to enhance operational efficiency of targeted farmer organizations. 

 "AMEA will position LWF to pro-actively engage other Local network organizations in sharing innovative approaches for strengthening business and institutional capacity of producer organizations. Smallholder farmers are often fragmented and underserved and therefore need to be supported to leverage from economies of scale associated with collective action, especially at the market end. It is envisaged that AMEA Local network will enable cross learning and sharing of resources among producer organizations"
