Using a Market Systems Approach to Develop Sustainable Value Chains


Wednesday, January 19, 2022 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

In the south of Mexico, lagging productivity and investment in both agricultural and non-agricultural sectors are increasing poverty and out-bound migration. Small producers face substantial organizational, financial, and infrastructural barriers to scaling up approaches that can bring environmental and economic benefits to communities.

In places like Egypt, Cambodia, and West Africa, Abt’s experts have addressed market systems gaps to scale up public and private investment and find market-based solutions that help lift marginalized groups out of poverty while lessening ecosystem degradation. In this webinar, we will draw on past experiences and extensive knowledge of southern Mexico’s current landscape to explore ways to improve productivity, finance, and demand.

This webinar will be conducted exclusively in Spanish. English-language interpretation services will be provided.
