Job Opportunity at SAGCOT, Operations Intern


Job Opportunity at SAGCOT, Operations Intern
Kinondoni, Masaki Dar Es Salaam

The Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania (“SAGCOT”) has been established as a public private partnership with three overarching objectives: 1) Enhance Tanzania’s food security and accelerate agricultural transformation and green growth, 2) Safeguard that this happens in a sustainable and responsible manner, 3) Improve livelihoods for smallholder farmers and their communities. The mandate of the partnership is to achieve this by catalyzing responsible private sector led agriculture development. SAGCOT envisions that USD $2.1 billion of private investment can be mobilized over a twenty-year period, alongside public sector grants and loans of USD$1.3 billion. The impact will be a tripling of the area’s agricultural output and income improvement for millions of Tanzanians.

Partners in the partnership include government, global business, the Tanzanian private sector, farmers, foundations and donor institutions. Each SAGCOT “partner” commits to a number of principles of green and inclusive growth and looks forward to contributing to the objectives of SAGCOT within their respective mandate. While private sector partners (local and international agribusiness companies, input suppliers and support services) are looking to invest profitably in the corridor while keeping with the SAGCOT principles, public sector partners (Government of Tanzania, international development partners) have a key role to play in creating a favourable business enabling environment and incentivizing greener and more inclusive agribusiness development through both physical and policy infrastructure development, land use planning, investment promotion, agricultural research and extension services, etc. A number of additional partners, such as civil society and academia also play a role in the SAGCOT initiative.

To act as an institutionally neutral coordinating body and secretariat to the SAGCOT Partnership, the SAGCOT Centre Ltd (the Centre) was established in May 2011. The SAGCOT Centre’s Mission is to play the unique role of an honest, non-partisan partnership broker within the SAGCOT Partnership. Its role is to facilitate partners to deliver on inclusive, sustainable and commercial agricultural value chains in the corridor. In addition, the Centre will monitor successes and challenges of cluster and partnership development and feed best practices and lessons back through the Partnership.

The SAGCOT initiative aims to facilitate the development of profitable agribusiness “partnerships” in 'clusters' along the corridor to achieve economies of scale, synergies and increased efficiency. Clusters are geographic concentrations of interconnected farmers, companies, specialized suppliers, service providers, and associated institutions. Individual partnerships are understood as either government – business, business-business, or business-smallholder farmer partnerships.
