Case Study

Our partnerships start at Ground Zero.  Our solutions are delivered at the frontier of poor communities often cut off from roads, water sanitation, or electricity generation.  In most of these communities, this basic infrastructure designed to support a few thousand people in the 1960’s, has not been upgraded to accommodate population growth or energy demands of developing nations.  A typical partnering national government has various socio-economic and logistical challenges including:

  • Insufficient energy capacity to power or meet growing energy demands capable of supporting a growing economy
  • Poor farm- to-market infrastructure
  • Poorly maintained road network or no road network at all
  • Rail system with outdated rail-based freight transportation capabilities. Integrated rail, intermodal, trucking, freight forwarding, warehousing and distribution services are uneconomical or not available.
  • Water resources but no way to efficiently deliver it to crops
  • A strong political will to advance the socio-economic welfare of the people
  • Deteriorating infrastructure
  • In-country food production capabilities insufficient to meet domestic consumption demands
  • Food security becoming a national security issue due to exclusive reliance on food imports to satisfy local demands.
  • Climate change has added even more pressure on the ever-diminishing natural resources, increasing risks associated with disasters such as droughts and floods making it challenging for national governments to empower their communities to live off the land.

This is where GAV Inc. delivers success – filling the capacity gaps, promoting national ownership, while developing comprehensive solutions to help meet food needs.

Strategic Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Projects in Public Works and Infrastructure Development in Sub-Saharan Africa

Inadequate physical, and social infrastructure remains a major obstacle towards Africa achieving its full economic growth potential. With Africa being positioned as one of the world’s fastest growing economic hubs, meeting the demand for key infrastructure to drive economic development is a top priority. Comprising a network of specialists in the areas of project finance, supply chain management, geo-political studies, financial modelling, economics, and engineering, Global Agribusiness Ventures Inc. translates the inadequacy of key infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa as a strategic opportunity. GAV Inc. utilizes strategic Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects to look past the traditional view of Africa as a homogeneous block. We undertake the detailed research required to understand the nuances and unique opportunities of each region and each individual country to deliver projects in Public Works and Infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Why Adequate Infrastructure Development is crucial to Africa’s long-term growth

One of sub-Saharan Africa’s top developmental challenges continues to be the shortage of physical infrastructure. Greater economic activity, enhanced efficiency and increased competitiveness are hampered by inadequate transport, communication, water and power infrastructure. The world is eager to do business with Africa but finds it difficult to access African markets due to poor infrastructure. To deliver its infrastructure development solutions, Global Agribusiness Ventures Inc. brings the world to Africa through Public-Private Partnerships (PPP).
