About Us

With knowledge creation KTA organises and processes information in order to generate new knowledge through organisational learning.
KTA's flagship initiative is known as eMkambo

The word Mkambo refers to market in isiNdebele language. It has the same connotation in the Shona language though in Shona, the word Musika commonly refers to the market One of the challenges facing Zimbabwean agriculture and rural development is lack of reliable, usable and timely information, evidence and knowledge for effective decision making. A significant part of the available information is either out-dated or dispersed in various institutions, people and environments. When projects and programmes by various NGOs, private sector players and other development organisations come to an end, in most instances, there is no clear mechanism for the knowledge that was gathered to be handed over and inform new initiatives. In addition, competition rather than collaboration among organisations in the same sector works against knowledge sharing.

As agricultural niches become congested and highly competitive, evidence-based decision making has never been so important. It is against these trends that eMKambo (www.emkambo.co.zw) will be conducting a series of master classes to answer the following questions:

  1. How can farmers and other value chain actors set prices for their commodities without passing through a complex web of intermediaries? From price takers to price setters.
  2. How can new value chain actors by-pass hurdles and insert themselves in existing value chains and ecosystems?
  3. How can smallholder farmers and other value chain actors build self-sufficiency?
  4. How can farmers enter and exit contract farming models towards self-sufficiency?
  5. How can digital technologies be used to harness the competitive intelligence dispersed among diverse value chain actors?
