Adapting to climate change: Dutch network members exchange

This informal gathering of AgriProFocus members was hosted by Heifer Netherlands and members exchanged experiences about their interventions to deal with the challenges of climate change in food and agriculture.


Pitches

ScopeInsight’s Maryse Blom started with the statement that ‘professionalism is the key, also for climate smart agriculture’. ScopeInsight has developed several tools to assess the professional quality of agribusinesses (incl SMEs) and trains partners in LMICs to use these effectively. The organization is a business intelligence provider, scoring companies on 8 clearly defined dimensions. As a separate service, they facilitate aligned capacity building that is provided by a group of organisations in the AMEA alliance.

Share a Slice: Climate Resilience - wat werkt voor boeren?

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Netherlands
  20 April 2017, 17:30-19:30
  Arthur van Schendelstraat 500, Utrecht

Climate Resilience van boeren verhogen, wat werkt?

Klimaatverandering vormt een groeiende bedreiging voor de mondiale voedselzekerheid. Het ontwikkelen van adaptatiestrategieën valt niet mee: de diversiteit in landbouw vraagt ​​om verschillende en vaak zeer context-specifieke oplossingen. Welke strategieën passen wij als AgriProFocus leden toe? Wat kunnen we van elkaar leren? En waar vullen we elkaar aan?

Het AgriProFocus netwerk organiseert maandelijkse Meet&Eats, door en voor leden, na werktijd, onder het genot van een stuk pizza. Heifer Nederland is de host van deze tweede Meat&Eat in het kantoor van AgriProFocus in Utrecht. De aftrap werd gedaan door BoP Innovation Center met het thema Inclusive Business. Hier kan je meer lezen over de eerste meet-up.

Het programma is als volgt:

17.30 - 18.00 uur : Inloop en een lekker stuk pizza

18.00 - 18.15 uur : Pizza Pitch van Heifer, Soil & More en SCOPEinsight

18.15 - 19.15 uur : Inleiding thema door Heifer + discussie

PizzaProFocus! Informal network meeting on inclusive business

On Thursday evening 2nd February, the Dutch network of AgriProFocus gathered for an informal network meeting with pizzas: PizzaProFocus. The meeting took place at BoP Innovation Center, one of the organizations which had made the proposal to the network to start such informal gatherings to enable people in the network to meet, discuss, get new ideas, and establish new connections.

This time, the theme was Inclusive Business. 3 pitches were done by CBI’s Eva Smulders; ICRA’s Bertil Videt; and BoPInc’s Niek van Dijk. Other participants responded, which gave room for further open questions and exchanges. Some of the key areas of interest from that discussion that I recall:

CBI has developed a new tool, with support of Schuttelaar & Partners, to support SMEs in low- and middle-income countries with an interest to export to Europe, in developing more ‘responsible business’ practices. After the use of this tool, t
