The purpose of this guide is to support businesses working in the agricultural sector to develop or refine inclusive business (IB) models that allow them to create mutually beneficial business relationships with smallholders. It provides a framework that identifies common challenges, highlights solutions and shows how these can be implemented through cooperation at different levels.

In this way, the guide aims to support company managers engaging in inclusive agribusiness practices with practical tools and a comprehensive overview of potential solutions and collaborative approaches. Practitioners from development agencies, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), intermediaries and other organizations working to develop and support inclusive agribusiness will also find useful insights here.

Based on in-depth sector research and case studies, the guide showcases existing experiences and lessons related to inclusive agribusiness and distils them into a hands-on guide for practitioners.
