Inclusive Agribusiness and Trade [ID: 40]

Inclusive Agribusiness and Trade

The Donor Platform has two independent work streams on trade and inclusive agribusiness, but with many synergies. While the thematic focus of each is slightly different, the contact persons from donor agencies and partner organisations engaging on both work streams are quite the same.

For that reason, some of the meetings, conference calls and webinars can be held together, addressing both the trade and inclusive agribusiness agendas. The Donor Platform manages a work stream which combines the issues of trade and inclusive agribusiness. While the thematic focus of each is slightly different, the contact persons from donor agencies and partner organisations engaging on both work streams are quite the same. Discussions under Trade focus on the global trade regime and regional markets, also addressing the still persistent gap between trade policies and agricultural and rural development policies. The Inclusive agribusiness work stream is dealing with market approaches & initiatives aimed at small to medium-scale farmers as a driver to enhance economic opportunities and reduce poverty in the rural space.

Platform members and partners engaging in this work stream include: WTO, DFAT-Australia, ITC, ICTSD, ECDPM, MFA-NL, EC, USAID, IADC-Italy, IFAD, GIZ, FAO, LuxDev and WB.
