Comprendre les enjeux de l'agriculture

Strengthening agricultural value chains in Africa is necessary to boost the rural economy. Indeed, by improving infrastructure, especially transportation and storage systems, it is possible to drastically reduce post-harvest losses, which can reach up to 40% for some products according to the FAO. Improving access to markets through digital platforms and cooperatives can open new opportunities for farmers. Furthermore, promoting local processing industries can add value to agricultural products, thereby encouraging job creation and reducing imports.

Ultimately, these measures can not only transform agriculture into a strong engine of economic growth but also improve food security while reducing rural poverty. By integrating small farmers into efficient value chains, their incomes can be significantly increased, stimulating local economies.
