Three years ago, we proposed the AgroDiaspora project to the French Quai d’Orsay “Africa Forum, 100 innovations for sustainable development”, in partnership with African SAP specialist STATIM. It wasn’t accepted, probably because it wasn’t enough ‘grassrooted‘. We did a very similar project though for Lithuania Institute of BioTech, which was a success. We helped grow a network of connected Lithuanian life scientists and biotech experts around the World.
It may also have inspired Romania’s namesake AgroDiaspora initiative :
The Romanians who work in this area abroad can contribute not only through investments, but also through their experience and working methods acquired – they need to be well-informed about the opportunities existing in Romania.
#ThinkLandscape is taking place today at COP22, and the question of financing sustainable development in Africa is the tough nut to crack.
African farmers need access to finance and sustainable development. Could Africa’s Diasporas -with their funding and expertise- be part of the solution ?
