When will developing countries stop importing knowledge? (11)

4 October, 2018

Dear Flora,

Thanks for your feedback. My organization is located at a City Council Building in Mbare but I don't work for the Harare City Council. We are a social entrepreneur and knowledge broker that works in more than 20 agriculture markets in Zimbabwe, including Mbare which, I agree with you, requires revamping to ensure food safety and avoid primitive diseases like cholera. For the past three years we have been nudging the council and government to direct resources towards improving agricultural markets where the majority get their food. Local authorities and policy makers are now listening a bit and we hope things will change for the better. One way we have been advocating for action is gathering evidence in agricultural markets on a daily basis and sharing it with the city council & government.

Regards,

Charles Dhewa
