Food Security and Livelihoods

We believe that sustainable improvement in the living conditions of the rural people and farmers requires sound policies at macro level. We support governments in creating enabling business environments for rural investments. Since the food crisis of 2007-2008 food security has again became a priority for many development actors. Our approach in providing services in the area of food security is holistic from providing expertise in improving land tenure and productivity, utilizing the most suitable innovations and developing value chains to designing the right policies. Our food security team applies value chain, finance, policy, training, and market linkage methodologies to improve availability and affordability of inputs, agriculture production, post-harvest handling, output markets and price discovery information, and exports, with improvements to farmer and other stakeholder capabilities to generate higher volumes and efficiencies that increase household incomes.
