This is a Framework for Agricultural Green Growth. The Blueprint had identified the important issues of climate change, environmental conservation, and natural resource-management as being critical to the Corridor’s long-term economic development, however, did not provide detailed plans to address them. The purpose of this Green Growth  investment Framework (the “SAGCOT Green Print”) is to refine the SAGCOT strategy to ensure that development in the Corridor is environmentally sustainable, socially equitable, and economically feasible. Specifically, the Green Print lays out a strategy for implementing “Agriculture Green Growth” (AGG) to sustainably intensify agriculture for smallholder and commercial agriculture alike, while simultaneously conserving the natural resource base that supports agriculture and reducing pressure on forests, water resources, and biodiversity.

Kilimo Kwanza Growth Corridors is an international public-private partnership launched at the World Economic Forum on Africa in May 2010 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Its mandate is to mobilise private sector investments and partnership to help achieve the goals of Tanzania’s Kilimo Kwanza strategy. By catalysing large volumes of responsible private investment, the initiative aims to deliver rapid and sustainable agricultural growth, with major benefits for food security, poverty reduction and reduced vulnerability to climate change. Members of the partnership represent government, global business, the Tanzanian private sector, farmers, foundations and donor institutions. It is led by an Executive Committee co-chaired by the Minister of Agriculture of Tanzania; and the Executive Vice President (North and Central Africa) of Unilever. The public-private partnership initial focus of the Executive Committee has been to prepare an Investment Blueprint for development of the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor (SAGCOT). The report was compiled by a technical team of African agribusiness specialists jointly led by Prorustica and AgDevCo. The Tanzania Agricultural Partnership served as secretariat for the initiative and provided ongoing operational support for the blueprint development. The World Economic Forum provided indispensable support, including hosting key meetings and promoting the initiative internationally. The technical team consulted with a broad array of stakeholders in Tanzania and internationally, too numerous to list here, receiving valuable input. The information presented herein is not exhaustive, however, and should not be relied upon for making investment decisions. Any inaccuracies are the responsibility of the technical team.
