The Local Expert Network: A Global Standard, Local Expertise
The LEN is a partnership program that – on the one hand, creates value for market players and capacity builders in target countries and – on the other hand, creates value for local businesses. Through the LEN, we attract organizations that share our vision of professionalizing agribusinesses and serve as reliable SCOPE tool implementors. These experts are the much-needed local infrastructure with the capacity to provide ongoing business development support to agribusinesses well beyond donor-funded initiatives. Through partnering with like-minded businesses (Local Experts), we ensure that international capacity builders can efficiently implement their projects while strengthening the local economy.
Food Security Impact and Investment Potential is Enormous
According to the FAO, “The demand for food is primarily a function of population and income.” With a population in the MENA region of 578 million people and growing the market for agricultural (and agri-food products) is enormous. Ensuring that agribusinesses are functioning optimally is not only important for attracting investment, but critical to ensure food security.
We stand by Enroot’s commitment to supporting sustainable and inclusive economic development and we are proud to welcome them as a new member of our Local Expert Network.
