The SAGCOT Partnership is made up of the Government of Tanzania (GoT), Private Sector, Development Partners, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and farmer apex organizations. SAGCOT Centre LTD supports its partners in developing inclusive value chains. Most partners join the Partnership as general partners to share information and explore partnership opportunities for investments and interventions in the corridor. Partners in the priority clusters and strategic partnership form alliances to resolve value chain issues and unlock investment specific bottlenecks.
