A selection of 12 workshops scheduled for the first three days will offer hands-on training in social media and Web 2.0 tools, present ICTs for fisheries, explore how to create a successful agribusiness company, examine value chain development and inclusive business models and much, much more. Other themes will be the agriculture–nutrition nexus, policy advocacy for Caribbean and Pacific farmers' leaders, improving access to finance, strengthening the link between agriculture and nutrition, successful initiatives to counter climate change and the genesis of a virtual incubator for young agripreneurs in the Caribbean. The final two days of the event - November 5 and 6 – will be dedicated to the 2nd Caribbean Agribusiness Forum - Strengthening the agrifood sector and expanding markets, which will examine the main drivers of agribusiness development and present success stories from both regions.
A wide array of side events will be on offer throughout the week, as well as a series of sessions scheduled to promote opportunities for business networking, with an eye to future collaborations.
