Holistic feasibility analysis for agribusinesses 

By George Kanyeki and Raphael Maingi

Investment activity in African agriculture has been gaining significant traction in recent years, driven by growing recognition of the continent’s immense agricultural potential and the increasing demand for food security and sustainable development.  

With approximately 60% of the world’s uncultivated arable land, Africa stands as a frontier for agricultural expansion1. Yet, despite this abundance of natural resources, the agricultural sector remains largely underdeveloped, with productivity levels significantly lower than global averages. Challenges such as limited access to financing, inadequate infrastructure, fragmented value chains, and climate change impacts hinder the sector’s full potential.
