for Poverty Reduction in Africa: African Facility for Inclusive Markets (AFIM)”, to more strongly address private sector development and engagement issues in Africa in support of accelerated achievement of the MDGs. AFIM’s particular focus is on the promotion of Inclusive Market Development (IMD) in Africa through the development and expansion of regional value chains in job creating sectors such as agribusiness, tourism, renewable energy, retailing and mining. Currently, AFIM’s focus of IMD is centred on agribusiness.

In October 2011, UNDP AFIM in collaboration with the NGO EMRC co-organized the 2011 Agri-Business Forum in Johannesburg and coordinated a Public-Private Dialogue. One of the principal outcomes of the overall initiative was the Johannesburg Declaration on ‘Engaging the Private Sector in Furthering Africa’s Agribusiness and Food Security Agenda’. One of the key action items called for in the Declaration was for Public and Private Sectors to jointly:

1. Support the development of the African food industry through inclusive market and value chain development
2. Pool financial and technical resources to establish more finance facilities that support agribusiness
