Preparing the world to meet its agri-food potential

Training future experts to generate better outcomes

In recent years there has been a growing build-up of projects involving capacity building, technology transfer and policymaking.

These involve initiatives that seek to develop more productive agricultural outcomes, particularly in developing nations, centring around training scientists, regulators, and policymakers on a variety of topics, including food safety, sustainable agriculture, biotechnology, and integrated pest management.

Medium-sized agribusinesses often operate through a network of smallholders feeding into the central agribusiness.

These structures offer the scope to deploy AgTech aimed at tackling post-harvest loss, while access to finance is a high priority for capacity building in terms of facilitating smallholders and agribusinesses entry to markets.
