The Brussels Development Briefing on “Women entrepreneurs – key players in ACP agribusiness development” took place on Thursday, 17 September 2015 at the ACP Secretariat. Women make essential contributions to agriculture and rural economic activities in ACP countries but still face limitations in integrating the agribusiness sector and upscaling their businesses. This briefing will look at successful business cases led by women entrepreneurs and analysing the drivers of success. All our resources are available online. Also, check out our twitter @CTAbrussels and video.

CTA, in collaboration with IFPRI, the ACP Secretariat, the European Commission, PAFO  organised a panel and launch the Sub-Saharan Africa Food Security Portal, on 16 September 2015, at the ACP Secretariat. Data has become a key asset for agricultural transformation in Africa. The availability of timely, relevant, and reliable data on the agriculture sector is necessary for effective planning, monitoring, and evaluation of agricultural and rural development policies and to increase the impact of field interventions. The Food Security Portal, facilitated by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), aims to provide improved food security for the world's poor and increased resilience of global food systems against food and financial crises. For all the resources, go to brusselsbriefings.net

In addition to this news service, we also provide news on ACP intra-regional trade, and south-south cooperation (investments of emerging countries' in agriculture in the ACP regions).
