AABS Agribusiness Monitoring and Evaluation Impact Report
In 2012, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded a grant to the Association of African Business Schools to establish an agribusiness consortium (AAC) - comprising African business schools, agribusiness industry and global partners - with the objective of development and delivery of Agribusiness Management training programmes backed by appropriate contextual research. The AAC rolled out multiple editions of a flagship Agribusiness Management Programme (AgMP) in Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania in partnership with GIMPA, Lagos Business School and Sokoine University of Agriculture respectively. A range of agribusiness training programmes were offered targeting levels ranging from farmers and medium-sized entrepreneurs to district- level aggregators to large agribusinesses and financial institutions. To date, the AAC has rolled out 11 programmes across East, West and
Southern Africa drawing 212 participants from 18 countries across Africa and beyond.
The Monitoring and Evaluation Impact Report is the core output of the Agribusiness Project.
