AgriProFocus:Being a Leading mind in Ensuring Food Security

My one month working as a volunteer at Agriprofocus Kenya enjoined me to a community with a clear magnanimous vision of Linking ,learning and leading in matters Agriculture. With my new born enthusiasm in matters Food Security as a mean to an end of achieving my vision of Restoring Dignity of African People; I am compelled to share with the world what I think we need to do for us to attain the sustainable Development Goal 2 – Ending all forms of Hunger.

There is no doubt as to what extent the world's apprehension of the impending danger of food insecurity in the coming days is . In fact, in his inaugural speech for the second term as President of Kenya Mr. Kenyatta indicated clearly that his government would target creation of over 1000 small and Medium scale enterprises in Agro-processing.

But what would be required for this to be achieved? To me it would take the initiative of well meaning individuals and Organizations to lead

Enhancing food security and business opportunities through food waste and loss reduction in a changing climate: Reflections from the Network Day 2017

According to 2011 FAO Global Food Losses and Food Waste (FLW) report, a third of all food produced in the world of human consumption never reach the consumer's table.These amounts to 1.3 billion tonnes of food lost or wasted evey year.

The Food Waste and Loss session brought on board various stakeholders who shared their insights that helped to draft an ACTION PLAN.The following were the represented stakeholders: Practitioners with a change maker attitude; Policymakers who can twist policies in a sustainable and inclusive way; Businesses that turn waste into value; Businesses that offer value chain systems; Innovators with innovative solutions to Food Loss and Waste (FLW); Entrepreneurs that can scale-up tested and applicable innovations to make money while addressing Food Loss and Waste.

The session began on a high note with Dr.Jane Ambuko f

Peter Kangacha https://www.thegrocer.co.uk/home/topics/waste-not-want-not/forecast-and-promo-failures-driving-waste-warns-tacon/560504.articleThey are simply saying that food waste is so ingrained in the supply chain that decisions of especially retail chains contribute to a great percentage of the waste. Such decisions as last minute cancellation of orders and change of cosmetic standards are quite so rampant among retailers since no policy exists to curtail it. This is being said by the groceries adjudicator, the same office that should reign in on retail chains to be responsive as reduce food wastage. Too bad that these decisions affect the often less able producers in developing countries, exacerbating the cycle of poverty and unwarranted inequalities.

Essence of a Network: Lessons from Kenya AgriProFocus Network Day 2017

"Your network determines your net worth". This statement should be the guiding mantra for agriculture enthusiasts who seek to ensure Zero hunger Sustainable Development Goal is achieved. If we are to achieve food security in Africa it then behooves us to employ every tactic and techniques to make sure better knowledge and skills reach those who matter – small scale farmers!

During the AgriProFocus Network day held in Safari Park on the 15th of November, several things stood out for me and this I think if diffused to the lowest ranks we would experience exponential growth in agricultural sector in the world. Below are some of the issues:

Making the case for Gender in Agrifood Value Chains

Members of AgriProFocus inspired for joint action 

On September 21st, members of AgriProFocus came together and jointly established an agenda for network actions on gender in value chains. During this meeting, they expressed their need for continuous attention for the case for gender at all levels in organisations and companies. There is a lot of action at the level of the members themselves, most of them implementing tools to strengthen the gender dimension of private sector investment or value chain work. Members confirm that collaborating with the network can enhance the impact of their work. To meet the needs of the network, AgriProFocus proposes to facilitate a conference in Spring 2018, to facilitate exchange meetings between members and to centralize available resources.

Many member organisations have included gender equality goals, women empowerment and/or female leadership within their organisational policy. Most members have de

Circular Agribusiness in the dairy sector: Let’s close the loops?

“Closing the loops within the dairy farm can save resources, finances, and create new value for both the farmer, the direct environment, and the neighboring farmers.”

Dutch Network meeting with Van Hall Larenstein students & AgriProFocus members- 26 October 2017

There is an interesting potential to enhance circularity in the dairy sector as well as in other agricultural sectors. Applying circular economy principles in agribusiness helps to save resources, to reduce the amount of waste and the negative environmental impact, and creates value. A ‘circular dairy economy’ tool developed by VHL Master student Mr. Mehrab Marri was discussed in a network meeting with AgriProFocus members and VHL students. The meeting generated interesting ideas for further learning on the concepts and practice of Circular Economy Agribusiness.

Hi there! Are you that kind of person that can't stop talking about how amazing it is to LEARN from others and do you want to know (even) more about this? 

On November 6th, a working group of learning experts have organised a small meet-up to discuss different kind of learning challenges. 

So what is this LEARNING meet-up about? The objective of this work session is to talk about best practices of internal learning processes within our own organisations. In a small group of learning experts, we will work together on (internal) learning cases, challenges and find concrete examples for our daily practices. 

We seek answers to the following questions: What does learning mean in our organisations? What do we want to achieve with it? When do we see ourselves as a learning-driven organisation and what is the role of a M&E expert in this process? And how do we exchange experiences about this so we really can start using interesting tools and examples in our own work/team?

Voice for Change Partnership: 'Nothing for us without us'


On 29th September 2017, AgriProFocus, IFPRI, SNV, the Embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands in Kenya together with several stakeholders started a journey that will see critical transformation and development in Kenya- the launch of the Voice for Change Partnership project. 

It is clear through available statistics that by 2050 the world population would be over 9 billion and the biggest challenge would be food insecurity. The premonition, if we don’t act on the looming food crisis, many people are going to die of hunger. From human point of view and indeed Africa tradition, dying of hunger is not only painful but also shameful. It is imperative then for everyone to commit to work in order to avert the pain and shame of the encroaching calamity.

The urgency of the solutions to this peculiar problem of food insecurity especially in Africa cannot be underrated. From several researches, it is clear that the Africa continent has latent pote

Circular Agribusiness in Dairy: let’s close the loops?

Event posted by in Van Hall Larenstein University
  26 October 2017, 17:30-19:30
  Van Hall Larenstein University - Velp

Agri-Food chains are based on linear principles, the call for a circular economy is big. The dairy farming industry claims to be based on circular principles, however, in many countries it is solely linear.

Which solutions for circularity do we have in agribusiness? Are these solutions climate-smart or inclusive? And what can we learn from each other?

You are invited to discuss these topics, together with members of the network and students from Van Hall Larenstein University during an informal dinner meeting!

To join, simply send an e-mail to Janine Schoeman (jschoeman@agriprofocus.com) before the 20th of October.
