Creating new market and revenue opportunities. This includes identifying new crops and links to buyers previously overlooked.
CONTRIBUTING TOWARDS SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT AND ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP
We support the livelihoods of farmers and sustainable local social-economic development more broadly by:
Strengthening the value chain. This includes enhancing quality, improving efficiency, reducing waste, and managing risks across the value chain.
Building capacity. This includes building knowledge and skills and access to market. For example enabling technical assistance; improving inputs and their application; supporting infrastructure development; and increasing access to financing.We also increase resilience of existing production by building the capacity of the project and farmers.
We provide a specialist external service with the skills and capacity to manage & navigate the complexity and bring together all the necessary parts of the agricultural business puzzle to achieve real and sustainable results. The combined approach, when combined with local communities, NGOs, governments, donors, can drive social progress and make a substantive contribution to improve food security.
A number of NGOs are looking for companies to drive social progress and make a substantive contribution to improve food security. This includes stimulating wider economic development supporting local livelihoods. They look for projects to address constraints such as lack of training, lack of access to inputs, credit or markets, lack of access to infrastructure for storage, distribution and processing among others.
Unique benefits of working with ImpactAgri
Our comprehensive approach integrates the concerns and expectations of local, national and international organisations. We follow IFC Performance Standards and have an advisory board to ensure we enhance the positive impact of our projects. Within our projects we support the development of out-growers as well enabling workers to develop their own enterprises. We particularly support the empowerment of women within food value chains.
