Published: 23 July 2013
The UN Development Programme says Africa should embrace inclusive business, a concept that brings together low-income people in a value chain, as a means of poverty alleviation while also achieving other Millennium Development Goals.

UNDP Zimbabwe economic advisor James Wakiaga said low-income people should be incorporated into the value chain where they will be customers on the demand side while they can also be employees, producers or entrepreneurs on the supply side.

"Such a scenario has the potential to create jobs and income while also benefiting livelihoods of these people," said Wakiaga.
