What’s new in inclusive agribusiness
Seas of Change and the Practitioner Hub for Inclusive Business have launched a bumper theme on “What’s new in inclusive agribusiness”. The series is inspired by the workshop “Towards a global research and learning agenda for inclusive agribusiness”, which was held in Brighton early March 2017.
In partnership with Seas of Change, BEAM Exchange, the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development and the Food & Business Knowledge Platform (the convenors of the March Workshop ““Towards a global research and learning agenda for inclusive agribusiness”), the Practitioner Hub for Inclusive Business has launched a bumper theme on inclusive agribusiness in two main parts, with an introduction by Hub Editor Caroline Ashley in her overview blog.
The first part of the series reviews a range of initiatives from diverse players, getting into the detail of how to make inclusive agribusiness work, from the drivers of farmer adoption of technology, to tools for assessing impact.
Part two of the series looks at the shifting and blending of long-standing perspectives on cooperative, corporate strategies, value chain partnerships, market system change, rural livelihoods support, financing, and innovation adoption.
The series is concluded by signposting to new resources on inclusive agribusiness, tips on where to find more and reflections on how learning and exchange can improve:
- Six new theme papers are published in 2017, exploring some of the key topics in inclusive agribusiness. Written by expert authors in each field, each paper aims to trigger thinking on what could be done through collective action.
- Updated listings of over 450 inclusive agribusinesses publications can be found on SearchInclusiveBusiness.org.
