Venue: Oceanic Bay Hotel & Resort, Bagamoyo

Objectives: Review progress of interventions in pilot sites and plan ahead. Specifically, depending on criteria to be agreed upon, we will determine: a) established dairy market hubs that are currently working well, where and how; b) additional villages where we can make the hubs operational in the next 6-12 months; and, c) villages where the hubs are unlikely to work soon. We will also reflect on the recommendations of the recent external Mid-Term Review (MTR) of the MoreMilkiT project.
