Country: Benin

GCCF was tasked with developing a cold chain rapid response and strategy in the West African country of Benin. GCCA member LixCap subcontracted GCCF to support the development of critical cold chain assets to operate on a commercial basis. Following a market assessment, LixCap and GCCF provided technical support to ensure the safe and commercially viable operation of facilities. The main objective of this study was to support the development of a roadmap to attract and catalyze commercially viable and sustainable cold chain operations in Benin. Based on their assessment, the team delivered a concept design for state funded cold chain facilities in Benin at the airport of Cotonou and design and tender documentation for airport-based cold chain facilities.
