This Project-Lab aims to be both informative and interactive; with exchange and debate between thought leaders and practitioners on approaches for building sustainable and inclusive agribusiness models. There will be presentations from experienced practitioners followed by a fishbowl debate, designed to stimulate discussion and knowledge sharing. The Small Farmers Big Business (SFBB) partnership’s common vision is that sustainable development must go hand in hand with the engagement of the private sector, especially when it comes to achieving food and nutrition security in African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries. Different types of collaboration between donors, developing countries and the private sector are on the political agenda for development cooperation. The ultimate objective is to accelerate growth in the agricultural and food sector by raising the capacities of private entrepreneurs, including commercial and smallholder farmers, to meet the increasingly complex requirements of domestic, regional, and international markets. The workshop will therefore discuss the role that the private sector can play in agricultural value chain development.
