We are simply not leveraging the scale of financing needed to transform food systems and deliver the Paris Agreement and SDGs. Moving to hope, this event will bring together experts from the finance space for an interactive brainstorm on what needs to be done to unlock the funding necessary for food systems transformation on the road to COP30.
Featuring a series of high-level interventions, this event will examine the state of play of food systems finance and explore a variety of innovative mechanisms that could be used to invest in the transition. It will touch on the role of repurposing subsidies, blended finance models for forests, the role of commercial banks and investors, as well as the innovative packages being considered by development-finance institutions.
This event is hosted by the FOLU in partnership with the Center for Global Commons of the University of Tokyo and the Blended Finance Task Force.
