1 AGRODOR AFRICA Africa Agro Development Corridor Executive Presentation Sept 2012

2 Acknowledgement Ethraa is a real estate, infrastructure and energy (REIE) investment development & management firm specialized in concession design for REIE projects. The approach is hybrid combination of investment structuring coupled with development management expertise. Ethraa operates through offices in London, Buenos Aires and Dubai. Our Due Diligence review and Critical Success Factors (CSF) audit had been concluded in producing the self financed Agro Development Corridor(AGRODOR )model; which comprehensively constitute an added value solution for agriculture downstream and upstream sectors. Ethraa has the expertise to manage both burdens and ambitions associated with AGRODOR initiative, the approach is briefly defined as: Developing an asset based sustainable investment concession structure in partnership with the government; which will reduce the contribution of Sovereign Client while enable the subscriptions of broader institutional investors and without Sovereign financial guarantee. Structuring the Master Plan to generate viable economic cluster product, in synergy with both infrastructure requirement and urban planning. Creating a governance platform of sustain feasibility, mitigate risks; and increase the added values, while initiating a synergy with the national development goals. Building Human capacity with economically and socially balanced investment model. AGRODOR model provides solutions for most of the obstacles identified by the world bank for efficient agriculture development.. Ethraa will deploy credible expertise to design the AGRODOR investment concession structure based on the forthcoming presentation of AGRODOR Pilot and that will be tailored made for each country. AGRODOR is flexible model and can be implemented on fast track basis .

3 Rationale Approximately 80% of all African depend directly or indirectly on agriculture for their livelihood. Agriculture provides 70% of Africa’s full time employment, one third of total GDP, and 40% of total export earning. Thus Africa’s overall economic performance is inextricably linked to the performance of its agriculture sector.. Africa ranks the lowest in the world in terms of yields-enhancing practice, mechanization, use of agro chemical and irrigated land. Also average only 125 grams of fertilizer per hectare compared to world average of 1020 gram per hectare, mechanization in reported figures equally dismal at 13 tractor per 100km square or arable land compared to world average 200 tractor per the same area.. There is enormous potential for agriculture growth in Africa, it has twelve times the land of India, which is self-sufficient in food production with twice as many people to feed... It has been shown that each 1% increase in agriculture productivity in Africa reduces poverty by 0.6%.. Source: WB

4 Some of Africa Agriculture Challenges & Characteristics
Over-reliance on primary agriculture . Barriers to access market due to poor infrastructure, market standards, limited products .. Limited public and private investment in R &D , rural infrastructure , healthcare and education.. Domestic agriculture policy constraint.. Very limited access to commodity market chain or global value chain.. Lack of know how to reconcile conservation, production and sustainable management.. Financing agriculture and rural development(Transportation & utilities infrastructure).. Commercialization via Cash cropping Community development and building capacity Develop agriculture based industries to create an added value Limited up to date yield-enhancing technologies and practices Lack of sustainable development and ecosystem Source: WB

5 Pillars of Agriculture Transformation in Africa
The challenges are know for some time, pillars of agriculture transformation in Africa: Investment in rural infrastructure… Promotion of the use of yield-enhancing technologies… Privatization to enhance the competitiveness in agriculture input markets… Creating an enabling environment… These pillars are the basic parameters in developing GRODOR AFRICA Investment concession structure.

Railways & Transit Dense Forestry

7 The Land Grab

8 AGRODOR Why Development:
The rising cost of Millennium Global Targets hinder the standards of wellbeing, whereas worldly the social financial measures are declining rather than climbing Employment: The sharp rise of unemployment due to technology, economic contraction and austerity requires developing the manpowered Agro sectors and industries Sustainability: The imbalance between development and urbanism creates shear stresses on governments to sustain the Urban Rural optimum equilibrium Security: The Food Security and Agro Production is the worry of 21st century, with more than 15 mln hectares are currently utilized in global land grab, and increasing fast

9 The Case Urban Overheating and Deterioration
Deterioration of Agro Production By 2050; 70% of World Population are City Dwellers Urban Migration Opportunities Urbanism Aspiration Solutions to Upgrade Rural Areas Infrastructure Congestion Inflation Problems of Increased Urbanism GOV Incubation CSR Programs Innovation AGRODOR

10 AGRODOR How Baselines: State Owned Arable Land
Owners Agro Development Corporations (Holding & Operational) Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Comprehensive Socioeconomic Development Incentives and Facilities for Investments (FDIs & Local) Components: Farming Models Agro Light Industries Agro Businesses Molecules Public Transit Systems Communications & Technology Grid Educational & Health Facilities Affordable Housing Models; if any Urban Businesses Incubation Farmers Products Market Funds
