Ensuring Sustainability through Inclusiveness is a short course by Wageningen UR Center for Development Innovation that seeks to provide attention on shifting business landscape, old, unresolved problems.
Threats and opportunities challenge businesses to re-think the status quo of their operations: rising demand for agrifood products, combined with strains on water, land, and labour, stress the growing urgency of securing supply. This course is intended for those working with smallholders in agricultural supply chains seeking to create and/or support inclusive businesses.
Poverty remains a devastating, cyclical trap for millions, with rural populations adversely affected. However merging business and social objectives requires ambition, strength of will, and a dedication to “business as unusual”. This course will help you understand the fundamentals of inclusive agribusiness, how you can get started, and strategies to achieve success.
The course will:
- Recall definitions of inclusive business models
- Explain the theory behind evaluations of inclusive business models (trading relationship) in supply chains
- Develop strategies to set up inclusive supply chains or enhance inclusiveness in existing supply chains
- Establish effective and efficient monitoring systems to sustainably measure success
