Accroître la distribution inclusive dans les marchés émergents

Business Fights Poverty a récemment publié un document de travail sur la façon d'étendre les réseaux de distribution inclusifs qui améliorent les opportunités économiques dans les chaînes de valeur en aval (http://snipbfp.org/2n5DJEj). C'était une des réalisations de notre Challenge on Inclusive Distribution, soutenu par la Fondation Citi. Le document décrivait trois modèles de distribution inclusifs et huit principaux facteurs permettant de mettre à l'échelle ces modèles et était destiné à jeter les bases d'une recherche et d'un engagement plus poussés.

Au cours des deux dernières années, de nombreuses sociétés de biens de consommation à grande vitesse ont utilisé de nouveaux modèles de distribution inclusive qui permettent aux entrepreneurs et aux microentreprises à faible revenu d'accroître leurs ventes et d'atteindre de nouveaux marchés.

Scaling up inclusive distribution in emerging markets

Business Fights Poverty recently published a discussion paper on how to scale inclusive distribution networks that enhance economic opportunities in downstream value chains (http://snipbfp.org/2n5DJEj). This was an output of our Challenge on Inclusive Distribution, supported by Citi Foundation. The paper outlined three inclusive distribution models and eight key enablers to scale these models, and was intended to lay the foundation for further investigation and engagement.

Over the last couple of years, many Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) companies have employed new models of inclusive distribution that engage and expand opportunities for low-income entrepreneurs and micro-enterprises in downstream value chains to help increase sales and reach new markets.

Despite the promise of inclusive distribution networks, very few have been able to reach scale. Without scale, they are considered a nice-to-have rather than a need-to-have for the busines

State of the Small and Growing Businesses Sector

2015 Impact Report - by the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs

Since 2009 ANDE has been tracking the state of the small and growing business (SGB) sector to assess its growth and impact on emerging market economies. This year’s report reflects a sector that is on the move—and also dives into regional market insights. It discusses the hurdles for emerging market entrepreneurship—access to capital, talent and markets—and evaluates how well the sector is addressing these.

Key highlights from the report include:

* ANDE members have collectively invested over $12 billion directly into SGBs and supported over 415,000 entrepreneurs with business development services.

* In the past ten years, 485 investment vehicles have launched that invest in emerging market SGBs, with an estimated $26 billion in committed capital.

* An estimated one-third of SGBs are owned by women, and more ANDE members have embraced gender-lens investing: at t

What is the importance of the emerging markets to the global economy?

Join the Master Class that will take place February 18th at 13:30h CET / 14:30 Johannesburg
Emerging economies have experienced stronger economic growth than developed markets, this is something that has been consistent in the last years and which is expected to continue in 2016 and beyond. 

Emerging markets are becoming the driver of global growth which is shaping global demand. Even though these countries only account for 37% of the world’s GDP, this is expected to gradually increase.

Learn what are the implications of this economic growth, how to identify emerging market opportunities, issues, trends, doubts and few certainties about the global trend for those countries that aim to become the world’s leading players in a free online Master Class by Dr. Mark Esposito.
