Few of the challenges humanity faces are as urgent and complex as food security. To meet the needs of a rapidly growing world population, an unparalleled, worldwide effort is required. Members of the AgriProFocus Network are dedicated to meeting this challenge in collaboration. By working together, learning from each other and unitedly pushing for change.
AgriProFocus brings together businesses, civil society, knowledge institutes and governments working towards food security. United in diversity, our members share the conviction that business and development are not mutually exclusive. This is why innovative 'agripreneurs' are at the heart of our strategy. AgriProFocus supports them in finding new, sustainable ways of doing business. Exchanging perspectives and expecting the unexpected. To accomplish more in a culture of collaboration. For people, planet and profit.
Navigating the network, AgriProFocus staff helps members find the right partners and the right information. Around specific questions, issues and opportunities. Rooted in the Netherlands, AgriProFocus is active in 12 countries in Africa and South-East Asia. Stretching from sprawling cities to remote, rural areas.

We know the important role that policies play in addressing the legal, institutional, and market constraints that agricultural market actors face. Teasing out how these laws and regulations affect women agri-entrepreneurs and wage workers can be more complicated, however.
The Feed the Furutre program Enabling Environment for Food Security project has produced a technical note and a series of blogs on this topic. This post is based on the second blog, authored by Cristina Manfre of Cultural Practice with input from Fintrac Inc. Readers are encouraged to access the first, second, third, and fourth blog posts as well as the technical note.
So, what does an enabling environment that supports women’s profitable participation in agriculture look like? Among other characteristics, it is an environment that:
- Prioritizes the collection and ana... Read more

Together with Putri from Agriterra discussion at local government about dairy processing
Solidaridad shared on their website about their approach to professionalize the dairy industry in Africa and avoid rising carbon emissions as a result of increasing dairy production. The business case for dairy farmers has been calculated in a recent feasibility study in Ethiopia and is currently being implemented in Tanzania. This approach enables dairy farmers in Africa to move from subsistence farming to professional dairy businesses, while using climate-smart production methods. Dairy farmers can mitigate climate change — emissions will be halved compared to the business-as-usual scenario — as well as become an attractive partner for impact investors. Commercial dairy hubs are a key enabler in this concept, providing services and milk collection facilities to farmers.

Today I attended this seminar at Wageningen CDI https://agriprofocus.com/post/5be315fe26b72a71f45d4e5d It was part of an international training course on Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships. And it was really interesting, especially for us working in coalitions and networks
A presentation by professor Aart DeWulf elaborated on sources of power: resources, legitimacy and authority. Power is present in any coalition where partners represent different stakes. There is also a common interest, an issue that requires joint action. In this action, the stronger partners need the weaker partners, despite the systemic power imbalance. There is power playing within the MSP: framing the problem, shaping the outcome. There is also power over the MSP: who sets the agenda, the rules and manages the information flow.
A second presentation by Geertje Schouten discussed the Round Tables on Palm Oil and Soy. Both are MSPs that started around 2004 and ad... Read more
The SDSN’s Thematic Network on Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems hosted a virtual, e-conference on fall armyworm (FAW) in Africa from October 22 to 26, 2018. Fall armyworm is an agricultural pest native to the Americas but introduced to Africa in 2015 or 2016. In the 3-4 years since its introduction, it has spread across the entire continent and is responsible for maize yield losses ranging from 20-50%. This is especially challenging for smallholder farmers, where yield declines result in lost income and hunger, and who often lack the knowledge or financial resources to recognize and respond to new pest species.
A number of experts presented on the challenge of FAW and solutions, in particular how to move away from the overuse of broad-spectrum pesticides, which are often ineffective and potentially harmful to human and environmental health, towards more effective respo... Read more
Visiting and reorganizing the mozzarella plant in Indonesia
Many fair take place in Tanzania with a focus to link farmers to different input providers. However none of those fairs are organized by the farmers themselves. The menu farmers fair is the only one we know of that is by the farmers and for the farmers.
The 2018 edition of the meru farmers fair just concluded on 3rd November where more than 600 farmers had an opportunity to meet with different service providers such as input suppliers, advisory services, financial institutions and development organizations for business linkages, obtaining knowledge, developing skills as well as networking. Additionally, farmers obtained and enhanced their knowledge on different issues such as proper inputs(seeds and fertilizer), access to finance, access to markets as well as entrepreneurship through workshops that were offered as a side event to the exhibition.
Not only did farmers benefit since the fair also offered a platform for net... Read more

Pesticides are still being used and this handbook makes an important contribution to how they can be more safely used. It explains what pesticides are, how they are categorised and what their advantages and disadvantages are. Spraying is discussed, as well as types of sprayers, dosage and how equipment should be maintained. Considerable attention is given to the human and environmental hazards of pesticides and the importance of carefully following directions for use and safety measures. This information is reinforced by the inclusion in an appendix of the FAO International Code of Conduct on the Distribution and Use of Pesticides.
