Smallholder farmers currently feed two thirds of the world population, which is set to increase by 2.4 billion in the next 30 years.
Household consumption in Africa is predicted to reach $2.5 trillion by 2030, which will require major investment in the agricultural sector.
Consumption patterns are already changing, driven by a demand for more sustainable, traceable and ethically-sourced food.
Investing in agriculture now will ensure that supply chains are more resilient and therefore more economically viable in the face of economic, regulatory and climate challenges in the years ahead.
Investment opportunities are not just limited to agriculture itself but a host of complementary sectors – such as crop aggregation, insurance, energy, irrigation, post-harvest storage, machinery and technical assistance – all of which contribute to improving the overall investment readiness of the agricultural sector.
