AG DEVELOPMENT

We firmly believe agriculture holds the key to addressing major challenges that confront our world – from poverty and hunger to climate change, habitat preservation, gender inequality and political instability. Agriculture is at the core of providing solutions to unlock these challenges – one season, one meal at time.

In today’s digital age, business leaders around the world are practiced in mining relevant information to produce the insights needed for navigating difficult decisions. The construction of these insights is not readily available in agriculture. Although the rate of innovation continues to increase, a lack of commercialization expertise has kept these innovations from reaching developing economies.

Ironically, many of the same developing economies are endowed with immense agricultural resources, yet handicapped from reaching their potential because of broken links in value chains that deliver these innovations to markets. Connecting the links to accelerate innovation will produce more from less on the land that we farm and allow for greater protections of our fresh water, forests, and habitats.

Through our private sector experience, we understand that the process of scaling up systems is often less about a perfect plan and more about having a good plan and the right people with an orientation towards growth. This ability to take risks and learn from mistakes results in sustainable development with exponential growth.

Context Global Development is excited to realize the very realistic possibility of solving some of these challenges within our lifetime.
