In April 2012, the ‘Seas of Change’ international learning workshop will be held in the Netherlands.To help guide the workshop, the organizers of the initiative have collated a number of case studies pointing to successes in scaling inclusive agri-food market development.
Several livestock and dairy examples are included in the case studies:
“The Seas of Change Initiative is a learning and research initiative that has arisen from discussions between a group of business players, development agencies and researchers. The focus of the initiative is on how businesses with the right support from government, donors, NGOs and research can scale up inclusive agri-food market development to ensure food security for 9 billion people and help to tackle poverty.”
The initiative web site also has an Interview with Sonja Vermeulen from the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
