Rapid assessment of crude and extracted honey, and beeswax
market channels/consumers
Assess the knowledge and capacity gaps in improved
beekeeping management and utilization of honeybee products

√
Assessment of bee forage sources and pollen over the year and
associated types of honey produced
√
Access to knowledge/skills development of apiculture
production by rural, urban and peri-urban; male, female and
youth
√
Rapid assessment of input supply (availability and quality) and
demand and access to credit facility
