Inclusive and sustainable agribusiness value chains can provide one of the highest returns on investment in terms of growth, poverty reduction, pro-poor employment, and women's economic empowerment in LDCs.
This session explored the opportunities and challenges in supporting inclusive and sustainable agribusiness value chains. It showcased examples of success in Africa, Asia, and the Pacific – where countries moved further up regional and global value chains by strengthening production, processing, and marketing of agricultural products.
