Over the past few years, a range of new funding mechanisms have emerged. Impact investment is in full swing. Blended & catalytic finance has extended its scope of action from developing countries to across the globe and Impact bonds (SIB / DIB) have started multiplying. Sustainability-linked loans and bonds have expanded dramatically. Voluntary Carbon Markets have gained traction and are expected to grow tremendously in the next decade.
In the meantime, the transition towards regenerative agriculture has been proven to be both absolutely necessary and progressing much too slowly.
Hence the following critical questions: what are the investment strategies that enable the transformation of agricultural chains by changing drastically their environmental impact, and helping small-scale farmers improve their livelihoods? How can innovative financial solutions unlock opportunities for agricultural supply chains to become more responsible and resilient? How do we raise awareness and ease concerns around such emerging funding mechanisms? How can they be made more inclusive while creating real social and environmental impact?
Moderated by Raphael Hara, this webinar will explore emerging impact-based finance mechanisms and their role in accelerating the transition to regenerative agriculture. Along with hands on practitioners, we will examine how collective intelligence coupled with impact focus and blended finance can foster more sustainable, resilient and regenerative economic systems
