CORE FOCUS AREAS – THE “BGB ECONOMY”
Sera Afrika is invested in both the blue and the green economy. Commonalities across the blue and green economies include ecological sustainability, inclusivity, responsible consumption and production, and investing in the future of our habitat. Both concepts measure sustainable human development outcomes against ecological impact for a truer picture of the world we want.
Our inclination towards the blue and green economies is driven by the realisation of an inescapable truth: it is only through the understanding that we are all stuck together as a people and stuck to our environment that we can arrive at sustainable economic development.
In order to advance the blue and green economies, we must also focus on the Build Economy. Creating sustainable high-value trade networks on the local, regional and continental scale requires establishing industrial manufacturing and processing capacities, stable institutions, modern infrastructure, responsible energy production and consumption, and expansive markets. As we have recently seen and experiencing during COVD-19, building Africa’s independent capacity to create and maintain an industrial base is critical to ensuring our value chains are protected.
The specificities of the BGB Economy, explored in the breakdown below, underscore the individual areas of impact that form bit parts of the overall prosperity that Sera Afrika desires to realise in Africa.
We are currently focused on food and nutritional security as food production is not only the largest employer in Africa but it also, literally, fuels all human productivity. Improvements to Africa’s nutrition value chains entails several sectors that are of interest to us; from grassroots wealth generation to education, technology, markets, transportation, energy, climate, and governance.
