The afternoon started with an inspirational talk by Ellen Mangnus (Utrecht University) on our mission ‘Making Agribusiness Work for Development’, followed by a participatory member session to reflect on key issues and challenges underneath this mission.
We continued with roundtable working groups on our four central themes:
+ Inclusive Agribusiness
+ Climate Smart Agribusiness
+ Circular Economy Agribusiness
+ Nutrition Sensitive Agribusiness
Central questions: What are the underlying challenges? What are the most burning issues? Where do we see the biggest opportunities for change? Where can we have more impact as network than each of us alone? Outcomes of this joint agenda setting excercise will be shared with members during our next Member Meet Up on Thirday November 16th.
We concluded the afternoon with speeddates between members and Country Coordinators. These lively one-on-one talks led to many follow-up actions!
