Step 1

Map and scope cooperative landscape

The first step is the scoping of the cooperative landscape. This is the crucial foundation of the entire AgriGRADE approach. To provide targeted assistance to each level of agribusiness, it is important to first know what their level is. To determine the level, first you must gather information on the agribusinesses themselves.

Using the SCOPE Rapid tool, AgriGRADE scopes the cooperative landscape in a country, region, or sector. Through this scoping, basic information on the agribusinesses is collected. The data can then be analyzed for deeper insights.

Using the results of this analysis, the agribusinesses are segmented by level. Based on this segmentation, it is also decided (based on pre-set criteria) which organizations will be selected for a more detailed assessment.
