Upcoming Seminar:
ACHIEVING FOOD SECURITY THROUGH PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS
July 10 - 21, 2017

Economic development is frequently dependent upon a strong and efficient agricultural sector. In this seminar participants will learn how to use public-private partnerships (PPPs) effectively to mobilize resources for improving agricultural productivity and strengthening the value chain. By examining a range of comparative case studies, participants will develop skills to recognize and address multiple challenges inherent in PPPs for their effective application in the agriculture and food sectors, to appreciate the value of multi-stakeholder engagement and participatory process in PPP design and implementation and to identify and cultivate potential partnerships. The seminar is designed specifically for the benefit of those actors in the public and private sectors and CSOs/NGOs who are engaged in agricultural development and food security programming as well as government officials responsible for the design and implementation of national policies for food security and/or in related ministries (agriculture, environment, health, etc.).

In the context of this seminar, the term PPPs is used to refer not only to the financing of physical infrastructure projects necessary to achieve food security (such as development of transportation networks (roads, ports, etc.), warehousing and storage, all of which contribute towards improved distribution networks) but also to a wider range of PPPs that may be considered unique and important to the food security community (such as value-chain development, innovation and technology transfer, delivery of nutrition programs and producer extension training, etc.).

Key Topics:

  • Challenges in Achieving Food Security
  • PPPs in the Agriculture and Food Security
  • Practical Applications of PPPs (Corresponding with the "four pillars" – Availability, Access, Utilization and Stability):

    • Production
      (Pillar 1 – "Availability")
    • Distribution and Infrastructure
      (Pillar 1 - "Availability")
    • Exchange and Trade
      (Pillar 1 - "Availability")
