Ce projet a pour but de favoriser les investissements alignés avec les ODD dans les systèmes agroalimentaires africains qui contribuent à la croissance économique durable et qui soient source d’emploi rural, surtout pour les femmes et les jeunes. Fort du soutien financier du gouvernement italien, ce projet est mis en œuvre au Burkina Faso, en Éthiopie, au Kenya et au Niger.

    Enabling More Inclusive, Efficient and Sustainable Agrifood Systems - GCP/GLO/002/ITA 2022
    Also available in:

    In Africa, boosting sustainable food value chain development can contribute to enabling smallholders and small service providers to take advantage of burgeoning food economies. There are indeed new opportunities due to the increasing and changing food demand, coming in particular from urban areas. One of the central drivers of growth are food based small and medium sized enterprises ( agrifood SMEs), which can become key protagonists of the transformation of agriculture towards more sustainable food systems. However, these SMEs struggle to take advantage of the increased market opportunities. Among the barriers inherent to agriculture and that hinder investments  such as high risks and weak mitigation strategies, limited availability of collateral, high transaction costs, and lack of business skills among small entrepreneurs  there is also the lack of capacity of financial institutions and private investors to assess profitable business opportunities within agribusiness markets. Against this background, this project aimed to foster Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) aligned investments in agrifood systems in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya and the Niger, to enable more inclusive, efficient and sustainable agrifood systems in these countries, and beyond.

    AgrInvest-Food Systems Project – Leveraging private finance for sustainable agrifood value chains in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya and Niger 2022
    Also available in:

    This technical note was written by the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) as part of the project “AgrInvest-Food Systems: Enabling inclusive and efficient private sector investment in agri-food systems”, implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in partnership with the ECDPM. The AgrInvest-Food Systems Project (AgrInvest-FS) aims at attracting private investment into agrifood systems aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by leveraging public funds. The note applies a systematic approach to the five agrivalue chains over the four countries covered in the AgrInvest-FS project, to identify relevant financing instruments and relevant types of financing institutions, which could potentially be interested in financing a segment of the value chain.
