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

    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.
