Open access data sets

MoreMilkiT monitoring survey in Tanzania

The More Milk in Tanzania (MoreMilkiT) project aims to achieve inclusive growth and reduced poverty and vulnerability among people with dairy-dependent livelihoods in selected rural areas in Tanzania. The project is primarily targeted at pre-commercial marginalized smallholder cattle-keeping men and women who do not currently participate fully in dairy value chains. This data set contains monitoring, learning and evaluation data from 461 households for project evaluation and impact assessment.

Open access research outputs

The Open Access Week, is a global event that is marked annually. It not only offers the academic and research community opportunity to continue to learn from each other, but also has potential to maximize research investments, increase exposure and use of published research among other benefits.
