Privatisation of Rwandas Fertilizers Import and Distribution System (PREFER)

Implemented by IFDC, the project is assisting the transfer of responsibility for fertilizer procurement and importation from the government to the private sector.

Privatisation of Rwandas Fertilizers Import and Distribution System (PREFER)

PREFER seeks to privatize Rwanda’s fertilizer supply chain in a sustainable way, phasing out the MINAGRI subsidy under the Crop Intensification Program and transitioning procurement and distribution functions to the private sector. The activity supports privatization by building private sector actors capable of taking on functions currently administered by government. This process focuses on grants and technical assistance to such enterprises under the PPP model.
