Welcome to AgroBIG

AgroBIG Programme


AgroBIG is an agricultural development programme using the Value Chain Approach to develop smallholder agriculture in the part of TanaBeles Growth Corridor that falls within the Amhara Region.

AgroBIG facilitates economic growth in agriculture by working with and supporting profitable value chains that benefit the involved market actors and stakeholders along the selected chains.

AgroBIG develops service provision to value chains actors so that they can increase production, trading, processing, retailing and marketing.

AgroBIG facilitates access to finance by making funding and working capital available for market actors as well as for research and innovation.

AgroBIG supports and develops strong partnerships, particularly those which contribute to positive change along the selected value chains and contribute to poverty reduction.

AgroBIG works towards the same overall development objectives as those having been identified by the Governments of Ethiopia and Finland, and we network closely with other development interventions in pursuing these objectives.

AgroBIG produces comprehensive reports on the technical subject matter areas for which we are responsible.

Value Chain Analysis


The AgroBIG Programme uses the Value Chain approach. The idea is to address the value chain constraints of specific selected agricultural commodities. A Value Chain Analysis will be made for each selected value chain. Such Analyses will, among others, map out the actors and stakeholders and their relations, identify their constraints and needs, identify potentials and prospects for value chain development and suggest Programme interventions.
