Mobilizing Finance Solutions for Food System Transformation in Africa
Farmer-owned associations share knowledge, buy products, and get trained to scale up their businesses. A major driver to these resources is access to finance, which is incredibly challenging for smaller associations. Strengthening businesses to further commercialize innovations that have a potential to kickstart and transform markets in the agri-food is what we try to achieve when ensuring access to these financial flows.
We want to delve into the issue of repurposing Agri-subsidies and explore financial incentives more broadly to support more sustainable resilient food systems. The session will address 4 critical questions needing solutions in the financial system as whole to transform agriculture outcomes in Africa.
