Developing a framework for “Agriculture Green Growth” in the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania
The framework for Agriculture Green Growth (AGG) is the outcome of a year-long collaborative research and learning process by the Ecoagriculture Working Group, EcoAgriculture Partners, the SAGCOT Centre and dozens of leaders and innovators in the Corridor who participated in field visits, interviews and the Agriculture Green Growth Leaders Workshop. The process was the first to bring together leaders at local and national levels and across the priority Clusters in the Corridor to reveal opportunities for investment and discuss what needs to happen to facilitate agricultural development that is supported by public, private and civic sector investment partners. The framework is designed to inform investors and other key stakeholders about the development context in the Corridor, and AGG investment innovations and opportunities that complement the goals laid out in the SAGCOT Blueprint, developed by the SAGCOT Centre in 2011. It presents the benefits and impacts of AGG innovations on the ground, the institutional and policy environment needed to create fertile ground for AGG to take root, the types of finance and investment strategies for promoting AGG, a scenario analysis of the potential impacts of AGG in the Corridor, and concrete next steps for advancing AGG.
The framework is comprised of a series of five documents, all of which are available on the Agriculture Green Growth Portal.
