Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 24 – 28 November 2014 Are you trying to envision an agribusiness that offers its participants something beyond a simple sell-buy relationship? Do you want to do good business, but also be in the business of doing good? Are you struggling to practically combine organizational objectives with social ones? These questions are core to the world of inclusive agribusiness. Aiming to create an innovative space for learning and collaboration, Wageningin UR and CIAT are combining forces to host an impactful course in Addis Ababa in November 2014. Join us to learn more about and discuss topics such as business-based change, integrating business and social value, and sophisticated inclusiveness.
What you will gain
During three cycles of concept-learning and applications to your own and other cases, you will be able to:
- 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
The backbone of the course is the LINK Methodology, a tried-and-tested approach to create new, more inclusive business models.
Is this for you?
This course is intended for those working with smallholders in agricultural supply chains seeking to create and/or support inclusive businesses. We are targeting people who can directly apply what they have learnt in their professional situation. The program is limited to 25 participants.
The course will be run by the Centre for Development Innovation (CDI), Wageningen UR with CIAT, the International Centre for Tropical Agriculture. Over 25.000 alumni have enjoyed CDI courses. CIAT has been instrumental in developing and trialling the LINK Methodology.
