We define sustainable investment as community-based, technologically advanced and environmentally friendly. It is our view that large-scale agricultural investments must be made in conjunction with efforts to improve returns for small-scale farmers. Education and skill transfer can have economic as well as social benefits within the local community, while smaller farmers can take advantage of improved local and regional infrastructure, including access to storage and transportation. This community-based approach to developing agricultural potential can improve long-term investment prospects by expanding the local market and increasing the community’s ability to attract investment. We see an opportunity to create agricultural companies that meet the return requirements necessary to attract foreign capital and, at the same time, to ensure that the many opportunities are developed in a sustainable way, contributing to the future prosperity and well-being of the people of Africa.
