Course Description

Rural entrepreneurship can drive innovation that reduces poverty, increases access to food, and creates jobs. Trust is essential for actors in agrifood value chains to be successful. The problem is that local agrifood value chains are often characterized by protectionist behaviour, which leads to high marketing costs and a stagnation, rather than positive change and development. This course will help you break the deadlock in your local agri-food value chains.
