Agribusiness Management

Current Research 

The Joint Agribusiness Department of Agriculture Forum for Africa (JADAFA) is an initiative by South African agricultural business and the government, cooperating and seeking to make a contribution on the continent with regards to agricultural related activities. This project seeks to identify investment opportunities in agriculture and agribusiness in the SADC region. The objective of the project is to identify investment opportunities with the hope that some of these potential opportunities will take off in these countries. The field trips and reports for three SADC countries (Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia) have been completed. For more on the project visit
