    Agriculture and agribusiness

    Africa’s agricultural sector is critical to sustainable economic development. It supports economic opportunities in rural communities, the alleviation of poverty and plays an essential role in food security. Genesis works across the public-private interface for governments, donors, philanthropic and private sector clients.

    Unlocking the sector’s potential requires a combination of political will, enabling regulatory frameworks, improved access to finance, skills investment and climate change adaptation. An understanding of these interlocking factors underpins our approach to programme design and implementation.

    MSME development

    MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises) are recognised across the world as drivers of socioeconomic growth and development. They make a significant contribution in boosting public revenue collection, employment creation and economic empowerment, as well as provision of goods and services to the public.

    MSMEs face distinct challenges that limit their access to markets and operation capacity. Examples include limited formal documentation, lack of access to quality supplies and modern techniques, lack of networks and connections, limited access to finance, and limited capacity.

    Gender and development

    To reach the full potential of the continent, we have to harness the full capacity and ability of the population by ensuring that women, who make up half of the population, are empowered to contribute in an equitable, productive and safe manner.

    Our work in gender and development spans a variety of contexts, resulting in deep insights and expertise regarding gender dynamics as these pertain to policy and regulation, public and social programmes, NGO and other women’s movement initiatives, and private sector growth.
