Abstract: In 2002 SNV launched the Support for the Cashew Sector (CASCA) programme to help revitalize the entire sector in Nampula province, Mozambique. The programme’s interventions would focus on assisting farmers to increase the production of high-quality cashews and on establishing new small-scale cashew processing units. In the preparatory phase SNV forged linkages between cashew producers, small-scale processing units, a cashew-processing factory and a Dutch cashew broker. In the current implementation phase, SNV is advising ADPP and AMODER, two local NGOs that are jointly implementing the programme. Within just two years the programme has helped to rebuild the cashew processing industry, creating more than a thousand new jobs in one of the poorest rural areas of the country.
