Value chains have the power to transform livelihoods of smallholder farmers. But this can only happen if they foster an environment inclusive of the needs of farmers, while meeting the priorities of businesses along the chain.
We seek to create an environment for smallholder farmers where they can participate and benefit from value chains in a way that meets their objectives and needs.
To start this journey, we are supporting capacity development for agribusiness-led inclusive value chains in the Philippines.
The Agribusiness Master Class
The Agribusiness Master Class (AMC) aims to develop participant’s knowledge of principles and practical analytical skills needed to apply market, consumer and value chain research methods to real-world agribusiness problems.
It is a venue to build future leaders and collaborators in inclusive business among researchers, policy makers and private sector managers in the Philippines. Initially piloted in Vietnam in 2015, the AMC has since been held in Myanmar, the Pacific, and now – the Philippines.
