Agriculture drives development – agriculture today accounts for 10 percent of the global economic output and provides livelihoods for more than 2 billion people in low and middle-income countries. We have worked on over 150 projects advocating, understanding, and helping solve problems facing agriculture actors at the international and local level.

  • We complete value chain analysis and sector landscaping to provide holistic, end-to-end analysis of agricultural outputs, including cash crops, staple foods, and livestock to uncover new opportunities.
  • We advise on business model development and market-entry to establish inclusive supply chains, connect buyers and sellers of agricultural produce, and enable agricultural actors to enter new markets.
  • We create innovative and inclusive agri-finance analysis to increase public and private investment to farmers, cooperatives, and processors and to design finance facilities that support these businesses.
  • We develop information and communications technology-based business models to extend digital financial and business services to remote farmers and processors, and to facilitate communication within and across agricultural value chains.
  • We monitor and evaluate programs and funds that support agriculture to ensure that ongoing and future projects impact everyone along the agricultural supply chain sustainably and equitably
