Coalition looking to commission impact study of potato in East Africa

The coalition members will focus on six initial countries of operation, namely: Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Uganda. The coalition is looking to commission a study into the impact of current work of the coalition partners in each country and the potential for replicability and scale.
