The Mali Market Information Project (Projet d appui au système du marché agricole ( PASIDMA) brings together the APCAM Assembly of Chambers of Agriculture of Mali with United States aid and academic support. In addition to setting up networks to collect and make accessible market information, including using rural radio and the Internet, its major focus is in training farmer groups about how to use short-term market outlook material in deciding when to sell their surpluses. This has involved partnerships between the private sector and the gradually devolving public bodies. Their initial project period of three years was dominated by a painstaking process of analysing users needs, covering farmers/herders, traders, food processors and consumers. As they entered their second phase late in 2001, the question still remained: how can this activity become donor-independent?
