Danida Market Development Partnerships contributes to sustainable market development that promotes the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Focusing on SDG 8 the main objective is to promote sustainable local economic growth and employment in developing countries. The Partnerships programme features an innovative approach to involvement of the business sector and contributes to motivating and mobilizing investments from the private sector.

The point of departure for a partnership project is a business idea driven by one or more private businesses. The business idea must support the development objective. Danida support is provided to combine knowledge and resources from different actors with the aim to ensure wider development results. The programme thus promotes broad partnerships federating businesses, civil society organizations, knowledge institutions, business organizations and other non-commercial partners.

The five partner consortia who in 2016 were invited to proceed with the development of a full project document are;

  • VedvarendeEnergi with Vestas Wind Systems as key business partner; objective: Support sustainable mini-grid development and production of wind turbines in Kenya;
  • CARE Danmark with Christian Hansen A/S as key business partner; objective: Enhancing crop yields and profitability in Kenya through biological plant protection;
  • Landbrug&Fødevarer/SEGES with Arla as key business partner; objective: Market-driven sustainable growth in dairy sector – The Milky Way Partnership in Nigeria;
  • DIEH with Bestseller as key business partner; objective: Improving productivity, quality and working conditions in Myanmar garment industry;
  • Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition with Arla Food Ingredients Group as key business partner; objective: Ethiopian dairy market development partnership.
