Green inclusive Finance as a Critical Trigger to Sustainable Agriculture & Food System
In recent years, collaboration among actors has been growing, new solutions have emerged, and interest in the green finance agenda has gained momentum among financial institutions, investors, governments and international agencies. However, a large gap remains between needs and action. This thematic session will build on the experiences of the financial institutions in the region on their efforts and the current state of green and climate finance for agriculture. A brief discussion on the challenges, key drivers of change and examples of innovative solutions is also expected. The expert panelist will also touch upon some of the key areas of technical and policy interventions required to underpin the importance of green and climate finance in building resilience to agri-food sector. This session is expected to provide suitable answers to some of the questions raised in different forums which includes:
a) How can we better align finance with sustainability and integrate climate related risks in agrifood system and opportunities into decisions that drive lending, long-term investments, and insurance?
b) How can policies be designed to capture the “triple dividend” through supporting financial mechanisms that contribute to: (i) reduce risks of future losses; (ii) increase productivity, drive innovation through greater adaptation; and (iii) lead to improved social and environmental conditions?
