Agriculture and Economic Growth

Implementing market-driven approaches to address development challenges

Dexis’ agriculture and economic growth practice, together with subsidiary Agland Investment Services, focuses on implementing market-driven approaches to address development challenges. We provide technical services in agricultural and other market systems around the world by building market linkages between small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and the private sector, increasing technical capacity, and fostering organizational development. Our vision for project implementation draws on local systems to integrate agricultural and enterprise growth, environmental sustainability, and resilience principles. Building on our experience in monitoring, evaluation, and learning, we utilize rigorous research methods to continually inform program design and management.

Our in-house team of experts specializes in market development, private sector engagement, SME development, food safety, agricultural technology, agricultural economics, land use management, and program development and management. Over four decades, we have implemented and assessed market-driven approaches, testing new production methods and supporting agricultural diversification, improving post-harvest handling and supply chain logistics, and facilitating business growth and trade.
