Taking stock of agribusiness chambers in Africa

Lessons learnt, success factors and good practices

Inclusive agribusiness umbrella organisations (which ideally are vertically integrated down to the level of smallholder farmers’ organisations) could be key institutions to contribute to policy dialogue and design from the perspective of the private sector. Furthermore, they have the potential to carry forward the implementation of such policies on the ground. The NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency (NPCA), as technical arm of the African Union for the implementation of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP), developed the NEPAD Agribusiness Strategy (NAS), meant to facilitate the establishment of dialogue and exchange platforms, including National Agribusiness Chambers (NACs), similar to National Chambers of Commerce and Trade. It is in this context that the present study was conducted by the NPCA in collaboration with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ). Its purpose is to provide a stocktaking analysis and institutional assessment of National Agribusiness Chambers and other similar private sector umbrella organisations in five African countries, namely South Africa, Ethiopia, Senegal, Ghana and Cameroon.
