Description

The agri-food sector is one of the largest economic sectors globally with huge significance for livelihoods, a large environmental footprint, and massive untapped business potential. To place the sector on a more sustainable, productive, and inclusive path, in line with the SDGs, PDBs operating in the sector must mobilize finance from different sources, including development, climate and commercial finance. This event will bring together experts from agricultural banks, farmers representatives and the International Fund for Agricultural Development to showcase innovative approaches to strengthen and leverage this catalytic role. It will energize, inspire, and launch an agenda for learning and action.
