OUR IMPACTS ARE FAR-REACHING AND DEMONSTRATE
HOW INCREASED INVESTMENT IN AGRIBUSINESSES ULTIMATELY
IMPROVES LIVELIHOODS, HEALTH, NUTRITION AND EDUCATION.
Our impact assessment methodology is used to substantiate and test the benefits of our activities (inputs) through to our outputs, outcomes and ultimate social impact.
Input/activity: AgDevCo identifies a new farm to invest in and provides business development services.
Output: A sustainable agribusiness enterprise is developed with better governance and local contacts; jobs are created; smallholders have increased access to improved inputs and are linked to markets.
Outcome: Additional investment is leveraged; the supply chain is expanded; household incomes are increased for employees on the new farm and immediate supply chain.
Impact: Agricultural growth rates are increased, and a reduction in the local/national population living on less than $1.25 per day is achieved, with multiple benefits.
