AgroBIG is an agricultural development programme in Ethiopia funded by Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Finland (MFA Finland). The purpose of AgroBIG is to assist in developing value addition at various levels of selected agricultural value chains, in order to increase incomes and create jobs for farming households and other value chain actors. Particular emphasis is placed on women and youth. AgroBIG facilitates economic growth in agriculture by working with and supporting profitable value chains that benefit the involved market actors and stakeholders along the selected chains. The programme focuses on two geographically delineated production clusters around Lake Tana that include eight woredas in Amhara: North Achefer, South Achefer, Mecha North, Mecha South, Bahir Dar Zuria, Dera, Fogera and Libokemkem. The first phase of AgroBIG ended in 2016. The second phase of AgroBIG will run from 2017-2022. http://www.agrobig.org/
