I feel like I'm missing out on some very good information due to my inability to understand French (and possibly Francophone participants are missing out on the English portions of the presentation as well). Is there any way the slides written in French can be supplied to us with English translations? Likewise, the slides in English provided with French translations for those who need it? I understand it will take some time to do, but it would really be helpful. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

in Nigeria, the shea trees are giving way to other crops because the stakeholders are not getting values for their inputs
ola Agbetu-Quadri (Keystone Mercantile)
01:25:13
for sustainability, more trees need to be planted and research and development must be on ground to aid farmers as encourage small scale processors

packaging and certification are important too

Hallo everyone, I'm joining in from Uganda. We produce Nilotica Shea Butter and are facing challenges that are beyond our scope as small producers and have no support from our Government or the GSA

Bonjour Diakite, oui c’est fini pour aujourd’hui. Par contre, demain il y a la formation sur l’outil digital d’accès à la finance, et ensuite il y aura le matching avec des investisseurs et prestataires de services. Normalement, ce serait bien que GTMD participe aux deux

Hi George, see this link for the existing online tool/platform: https://invest.globalagribusinessalliance.com/ We are scoping how to build on this, including through a series of deep dives, to involve the wider SME community, and to meet the wider needs that we shared in our presentation

To I&P : what is the process to benefit I&P support and investment?
Yves Komaclo Oikocredit
01:44:12
Agree with Baafour's point on infrastructure; shea plantations are typically in the Sahel region, with difficult access to roads and especially WA ports
Renee Chao-Beroff
01:45:56
This is why digital platforms play such an important role to unlock the potential growth for the value chains
CEPHAS AWEDAGA BABACHUWE
01:47:07
I agree Renee. digitization is the way forward

How can we ensure benefits for the most vulnerable group in the value chain - the women collectors and processors? Many women cannot make a living of the shea processing, as it is very labour intensive.

processing cooperatives do help women to make a living and investing in these coops will help modernizing their facilities and make them more profitable and resilient

il faut l'implication de plus d'acteurs comme L'Occitane, Body Shop...
