GAA is committed to being part of private sector action to facilitate more widespread and effective cross-sector partnerships in the landscape. This Action Brief, the first in a series across the GAA workstreams, serves as the first step in that direction and intends to stimulate progressive dialogue and over time, collaborative action on the ground.
The Brief summarizes the business case for joined-up action for both mining and agribusiness companies, with a focus on the role and relevance of building sustainable smallholder livelihoods to both sectors.
A selection of ‘critical success factors’ for building partnerships is proposed and used to identify ten potential partnership sites. The Brief concludes with a number of possible next steps and an invitation for comment.
