The African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States, the UN FAO and the ACP-EU Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA), will be organising a joint side event at the Third International Conference on Financing for Development taking place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 13-17 July.
The event will focus on Financing Investments and Agribusiness for Food and Nutrition Security: Public and Private Sector Coordination.
This high-level panel will discuss the importance of private and public sector investments in the agrifood sector which benefit small-scale farmers, SMEs and value chain actors. It will highlight a mutisectoral approach, including policy support, finance and capacity building for value chain actors.
The panel will address various approaches ranging from policy support at country level; the operationalization of the policy framework for enhanced, structured engagement of aid programs with the private sector; the need to leverage private finance in development and what mechanisms are in place to support SMEs in the agrifood sector and the need to support inclusive and profitable value chains.
The high-level panelists will provide examples of success and demonstrate how transformative public-private partnerships can lead the way towards the economic transformation of Africa. The panel discussion will be conducted in interactive format.
