Field Report from MUZARDI
We have recently held the PMCA Phase II Final Event in Mukono, Uganda.
The main objective of this event was to allow the PMCA groups to demonstrate their progress, outline the market opportunities they had identified, and present their work plans for Phase 3.
The stakeholders involved in the different groups presented their groups’ work and achievements. The group representatives visually presented their joint work plans to the plenary highlighting the missing actors and specific support the group would need during Phase 3. Various actors from each of the groups were asked to share their achievements as a result of participating in PMCA.
To highlight the innovations formed as a result of the PMCA process, a mini exhibition was organized and various actors presented their ideas and product prototypes. Due to the common constrain of unreliable rainfall, a Treadle pump was also demonstrated to the actors at this event.
What was accomplished?
- A total of 70 participants attended
- The actors shared results of Phase II
- Product prototypes of proposed innovations were exhibited
- Work plans were presented
- Areas for specific support were identified
