Investing in Agroecology Entrepreneurship to achieve Sustainable food systems

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkSocietal


Agroecological Entrepreneurship is growing in East Africa as one of the ways of promoting agroecology. Many Agroecology entrepreneurs (AEEs) are starting and looking to grow businesses that are enabling farmers to practise agroecology. However the majority of the AEEs lack critical early stage support to become profitable and investable businesses yet they account for 2/3rds of jobs in low income countries which is the case for Uganda and Kenya. With the right support, they can potentially further grow the local wealth through jobs and revenue, promote biodiversity, food and nutrition security among others. The objective of the side event is to amplify promotion, learning and stakeholder collaboration around Agroecology entrepreneurship.
