Critical pillars necessary for sustainable investment in Agriculture and Agri-business identified!

The five critical pillars has been identified and proposed by #afdb as the new approach to investing in agriculture and agri-business. These are;

1. Scaling up of proven climate-adapted, science-based production and other technologies;

2. Creating an enabling environment for enhancing agricultural production. Governments must commit to policy and regulation that facilitates access to modern technologies;


3.  Building critical backbone infrastructure linking production areas to markets and processing at African national and regional levels;


4. Crowding in private-sector investments and access to finance. Private sector investment and business expertise will grow food supply chain commercial viability, as well as inclusion of more small and medium enterprises and smallholder farmers;


5. Support to an African special emergency assistance fund on famine and drought.”
