Responsible agricultural investment

Responsible agricultural investment

Achieving Zero Hunger (SDG2) requires significant increases in investment in agricultural value chains. At the same time, international investment in agriculture comes with a broad range of social, economic, and environmental challenges.

The inter-agency working group (IAWG) of UNCTAD, the World Bank Group, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the International Fund for Agriculture Development has worked together for a decade to improve understanding and provide recommendations on how to maximize the benefits of international investment in agriculture while minimizing the risks.

The high-level meeting will present the lessons learned from the application in the field of responsible agricultural investment principles, and assess relevant policy dimensions and future policy-oriented research and work directions.

Greg S. Garrett, GAIN's Director, Food Policy and Financing, took place in the discussion.
