Venue: Indepth Research Services, Nairobi, Kenya.
Event Date : 11th – 15th June 2018
In 2016, the world launched the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development Goals which is a set of 17 Global Goals to succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). These Goals include Goal 1 and 2; that focus on ending poverty and hunger respectively among others. Despite the existence of global agendas and frameworks to reduce poverty and end hunger, the world still experience acute hunger and poverty. For instance, according to the United Nations report of June 2017, the world population stood at 7.5 billion out of which one of nine people did not have enough to eat.
While increased agricultural production is essential in improving food security status of households and the nation, it is not sufficient to reduce hunger and poverty. The best approach would be to promote the entire agricultural value chain through collaborative efforts among the state and the non state actors. These actors include donors, banks, civil society organizations, private sector, religious groups, and agricultural associations among other groups. The formation of collaborations can be informed by studying the entire chain, identifying opportunities and constraints as well assessing the need for Business Development Services (BDSs) that can help smallholder farmers improve enterprise(s) performance. These BDSs include input, advisory services, market information/communication through ICT, business management, legal services, financial services, transport services, insurance, farm implements (tools and equipment), gathering and storage and value addition.
