Donor support to youth agribusiness: Right assumptions?

  1. 1. International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas icarda.org cgiar.org A CGIAR Research Center Donor support to youth agribusiness: the right assumptions? Tuesday 25th June 2019 Annual Food Technology Department workshop Department of Food Industry- National Research Centre

  5. 5. icarda.org 5 The linkages between the future of agriculture, the transformation of rural spaces and the need to provide youth with the conditions for a decent and meaningful life, raise many questions about the role that donors can play.

  6. 6. icarda.org 6 While the majority of food economy jobs are in agriculture, off-farm employment in food- related manufacturing and service activities is increasing as the food economy adapts to rapid population growth, urbanisation and rising incomes. Agriculture, Food and Jobs in West Africa OECD, April 2018. 32 pages
  7. 7. icarda.org 7 Food imports to Africa are not only driven by “foreign” exporters but can also be in the interest of domestic private and public parties who benefit from tariffs and licensing fees. It is often easier and more rewarding to rely on imports than reforming border-rules with African neighbours or supporting smallholder farmers and source food from domestic rural areas. It is for African policymakers to find the right balance between the interests of local producers, aiming at higher prices, and poorer urban population, aiming at lower prices.
  8. 8. icarda.org 8 Technology-related productivity gains in crucial sectors (i.e. financial services, education, health, retail, agriculture, and government) in Africa are predicted to reach between US$ 148bn and US$ 318bn by 2025.

  16. 16. icarda.org 16 Dietary transition: the agricultural transformation General figures on agricultural transformation in developing countries considered by donors indicate that while perhaps 30% of the farmers may be able to join, take advantage and grow, up to 70% is bound to lose. As a result alternative development plans or social protection must be developed for the majority. Some go even as far as saying that development agencies should focus on the food and nutrition security of the 70%, and leave the 30% to others.

Its credit line will serve the same objectives and target groups as ADP is serving today.  The Agent Bank (CIB) contract was signed with MALR and CIB in July, 2016.  Six participating banks signed their respective contracts. They are; (1) National Bank of Egypt (NBE); (2) Bank of Alexandria (BOA); (3) Export Development Bank of Egypt (EBE); (4) The Principle Bank for Development and Agricultural Credit (PBDAC). The Commercial International Bank (CIB) is acting as a participating bank in addition to its function as Agent Bank. Support to Agricultural SME (SASME)
