Ksapa designs and manages targeted and customized investment programs to address specific issues. Our teams bring together companies and investors willing to combine economic performance and positive impact across the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Ksapa is notably developing the Scale Up Training, Traceability and Impact initiative. Also known as SUTTI, the program aims to design and disseminate large-scale technical and vocational training specific to smallholding farmers working in fragmented agricultural commodity supply chains in South-East Asia and Africa. Feel free to reach out to our team to learn more about the SUTTI initiative!
INVESTING IN EDUCATION AND TRAINING: A MAJOR LEVER FOR THE SDGs
Education, like, technical and vocational training are systemic issues. All three stand to have a tremendous impact across several SDGs in one fell swoop. For instance, our SUTTI initiative works to improve revenue sources and working conditions, promote sustainable agriculture and decrease the carbon intensity of supply chains. As such the program positively affect the following SDGs: No Poverty (#1), Quality Education (#4), Decent Work (#8), Reduced Inequalities (#10), Responsible Production (#12) and Climate Action (#13).
DESIGNING TRAINING SOlUTIONS
The SUTTI initiative is centered around an hybrid training solution, leaning on a mix of face-to-face sessions organized through local partnerships and digital solutions. This allows our team to boost training coverage and accessibility, measure our social, economic and environmental impacts and improve traceability all along the supply chain. Working with our agronomic and development expert partners as well as with industrial buyers, SUTTI combines an improved access to agricultural best practices – both in terms of productivity and sustainability – and actionable training on core issues the likes of financial literacy.
Federating corporations and investors
Leveraging our field, technical and financial expertise, we have designed SUTTI to be systemic, sustainable, scalable and replicable across a number of agricultural commodities and in several South East-Asian countries. To effectively impact real people and the real-economy, we align the contrasting interest of public and private investors and corporations and aggregate collaborative efforts.
Our teams ultimately design and roll digitalized vocational training solutions to engage the numerous workers and smallholders of typically large and complex agricultural commodity supply chains. Finally, we balance our efforts to fight poverty and deforestation with a capacity to generate sound returns for our investors.
Securing Strategic supply chains
While significantly increasing the revenue of training participants, the SUTTI program also comes with a direct socio-environmental impact, as part of an added-value sharing scheme designed to benefit to all stakeholders – from training participants, to local and global partners and investors.
Through innovative financing, we help companies innovate and reinforce existing sustainability programs, to improve and secure their supply and value chains for the long run. Using finance and digital solutions, we help aggregate efforts and align agendas among various investors, companies and stakeholders toward the development of large-scale programs. The result is we support business risk management and help build resilience across corporate operations. We generate economic return as well as positive impacts across various SDG priorities, for the benefit of the many.
