Upcoming webinar detailing experiences from German Development Cooperation

This webinar will provide you with an overview of GIZ’s approach on Inclusive Contract Farming (ICF; based on two handbooks published on behalf of BMZ (2013, 2015)). It will discuss implementation experiences from selected GIZ projects in Africa and introduce the Agri-Business Facility for Africa (ABF). We will summarize the experience and successes of 30 projects in 20 countries which resulted in higher income for supplying MSMEs, new and better products, environmental competitive advantages of producing regions on international markets and many more (see details attached)

Together, we would now like to discuss ways to integrate our partners for further upscaling of successful ICF approaches across the African continent.

Language: English with simultaneous translation to French
