Business Development Division (Processing and Marketing)
This unit is to support value addition initiatives to ensure increased earnings from the produced crops of either forestry or agriculture using environmentally appropriate approaches. It is to promote cost-effectiveness in production systems. It includes technical productivity development and a marketing component. The focus is across all sectors from forestry to the agricultural activities. Innovation to ensure production efficiency for sustainability is a key component. We wish to be known for having a broad understanding and supporting implementation of a range of environmental innovations that enhance the concept of sustainable development. These include green energy solutions and efficiency in energy production, particularly biomass based energy such as charcoal.
