Strengthening the resilience of the agriculture sector project: Feasibility study - business plan - ESIA/ Detailed design/cost estimate for three ALCs and Supervision of works (2022-2025)
The Project supports the establishment of three Agro-Logistic Centres (ALCs) located with one each in the Khatlon, Sughd, and RRS regions, where horticulture production is concentrated. The basic parameters for each ALC would include: a minimum 10,000 m² of area, from 3,000 to 5,000 m² of built facilities, with enough flexibility to anticipate an expansion, a handling capacity for 5,000 to 8,000 tons of fresh and processed fruits and vegetables, (cold) storage capacity, and a multi-functional sorting, grading and packing line.
The scope of works is divided into three phases, with each phase being conditional on the Client’s approval of the preceding phase. Phase 1 consists in preparing a feasibility study and schematic design. Phase 2 consists in preparing a detailed engineering design and bidding documents. Phase 3 consists in supervising the works.

The programme must meet the two-fold objective of optimising the development of farmland and attracting national or international investors to increase national added value.
The feasibility study must assess the costs and returns of the programme, evaluate its constraints and propose solutions thereto, and finally, propose operating arrangements that meet the government’s objectives.
Diversifying Eswatini's sugar industry through the development of an agri-business park (2021)
The objective of the study is to develop a conceptual proposal for an agribusiness park, to be situated close to the sugar mills for industries that use sugarcane related by-products as well as businesses involved in the supply of inputs and services to the sugar industry. This encompasses a proposed location, a detailed review of the relevant legislation, the incentives to put in place and the required infrastructures. The consultant is expected to prepare a detailed conceptual proposal with implementation timelines, clearly outlining actions to be taken by the sugar industry and those to be undertaken by Government.
