BAGC Investment Blueprint

In a report Beira Agricultural Growth Corridor - Delivering the Potential, InfraCo shows how the Beira corridor region of south eastern Africa can become a world class agricultural producer, eliminating food imports.

The report launched on Wednesday 27 January 2010 at the World Economic Forum in Davos identifies 190,000 hectares in Mozambique as having the potential to generate revenues for farmers of more than US$1 billion per year. But lack of irrigation, grid-connected electricity and all-weather feeder roads make this impossible.

Patient capital is needed to unlock the potential. It is used to finance "agriculture-supporting" infrastructure, especially irrigation, and make it available to farmers at affordable cost. The result: vastly improved yields, lower costs and the ability for farmers to compete in domestic, regional and global markets.

The report shows how US$250m of patient capital could induce private investment in Mozambique of more than US$1billion. It estimates that over a twenty year period more than 350,000 new jobs could be created with major benefits for more than 200,000 smallholder farmer households, many of whom would gain access to affordable irrigation.
