Objectives

Upon completion of the course applicant will:

  • have become sensitive to imbalances within agrifood value chains and how these issues can be addressed;
  • have strengthened your capacity to promote rural wealth creation;
  • have strengthened your competence in the area of market access of microl entrepreneurs;
  • have the ability to identify pro-poor, smallholder inclusive and/or gender-friendly agribusiness development opportunities;
  • be able to apply the tools that support private sector driven innovations in agrifood value chains.
