What will you learn? 

Agriculture and Food GP is focusing on operationalizing the MFD agenda in the agriculture and food sector, together with agribusiness colleagues in FCI GP, IFC and MIGA. To support capacity building of WBG staff to implement the MFD approach in their operations, this webinar series aims to provide practical information on our strategy, available tools and early MFD cases in the sector. The third webinar under the MFD in the Agriculture and Food Sector Webinar Series invites our FCI colleague, Jean Saint-Geours, to explain the FCI Agribusiness Deep Dive methodology and how it contributes to informing IFC Country Private Sector Diagnostics (CPSD) as well as broader WBG operations. The webinar will explain its role under the MFD context and give practical information such as available resources and timeline. The session will showcase several country examples as well.
