Inclusive skills for enterprise development in agribusiness

This report for the European Training Foundation (ETF) provides an overview of challenges, opportunities, and current policy and private sector experiences concerning innovation and inclusive skills development for sustainable agribusiness development in five countries: Georgia, Morocco, Serbia, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. It examines the practices and experiences of a range of agribusiness companies in each country, from (M)SMEs to international retailer brands. Although it considers wider trends across global and national agri-food systems, its principal focus is on downstream agri-food processing, trade, and retail. The report also examines some of the public policy implications of the industry trends and specific private sector experiences examined, and provides some broad ‘pointers’ for further policy and private sector interventions to promote innovation and inclusive skills development in and for enterprise development in agribusiness.
