Geoff Norman is team leader of the Market Development Programme for Northern Ghana (MADE), funded by the UK Government’s Department for International Development (DFID) and managed by Nathan Associates UK. MADE acts as a “market systems facilitator” to support and incentivise private sector actors to improve the functioning of value chains. The programme was launched in 2014 and for the first four years helped build the capacity of small rural enterprises to deliver affordable agricultural inputs and services to small-holder farmers. In December 2017, MADE was granted a two-year, no-cost extension to deepen and widen the impacts of its market systems approach and to mainstream those impacts.
