Covenant Plant-Based Proteins 

Globally boosting sustainable production & consumption of plant protein

The production of high-quality plant proteins has overall much less impact on natural resources and the environment than production of animal proteins and contributes to public health. The urgency to act now is more relevant than ever. The ultimate challenge is to make sustainably produced high-quality plantbased proteins more readily available and more attractive for human consumption worldwide. We are inviting partners who want to work on these solutions in a coalition of experts, solution providers, supporters and market players.

- By promoting a favourable international policy climate

- By strengthening local sustainabl

Helene Ndindabo Tuyisenge Yes,I am firstly greeting to everyone.I believe that,night yield crop production will will make also the contribution of conserving our environment.

Thank you

Quick Scan Study: Youth inclusiveness in agricultural transformation

AgriProFocus, the INCLUDE platform (INCLUDE) and the Food & Business Knowledge Platform (the F&BKP) present the results of a quick scan study providing some new insights into the challenges of the agricultural sector, food security and youth unemployment. It also looks at the extent to which current policies and programs are addressing these issues with the aim of stimulating constructive dialogue and debate.

Looking at the cases of Mali, Kenya and Ghana, the aim is to identify context specific approaches to stimulate constructive dialogue and debate with policymakers and practitioners.

Alinta and Alpha did the mapping in Mali and Kenya; the analysis is done by F&BKP and Include.

Georges Djodji Akibodé Plusieurs données montrent en effet que dans les pays Africains , la plupart des femmes sont employées dans les échelons les plus bas des chaînes de valeur et dans des positions souvent stéréotypées, lesquelles nécessitent un niveau minimal de qualification et ne sont pas bien rémunérées. Une chaîne de valeur fait référence à l’ensemble des étapes d’un processus de fabrication d’un produit. L’intégration économique des femmes dans une approche chaine de valeur sensible au genre consiste donc à trouver comment faire pour que les femmes soient associées à l’ensemble des étapes du processus de fabrication d’un produit, depuis sa conception jusqu’à sa vente au client final.

At a small scale level is what small scale farmers need to defect from rain-fed agriculture in this corner of Africa.
