Inclusive Business Strategies in Sub-Saharan Africa (completed)

Inclusive Business Strategies in Sub-Saharan Africa (completed)

This action-oriented research programme brought together a large consortium of companies, knowledge institutes, NGOs and government agencies from the Netherlands and six African countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda. The project was run by PrC, the Eastern and Southern Africa Management Institute (ESAMI), and the Netherlands-Africa Business Council (NABC). 

This project explored the characteristics of inclusive business models and critical factors for effectively implementing them, particularly focusing on the role of partnerships. It uses a number of front-runner Dutch companies and NGOs in six African countries as examples.

As part of this project, we have performed several case studies. Here you can read about Philips in Kenya. This paper presents cases on food provision from Ethiopia and Benin.
