Building bridges between finance and development cooperation for the adaptation of food systems
Addressing climate change and transforming food systems requires a coordination of public and private forces. This session will provide recommendations on enhancing food system adaptation in country-level investment processes.
The EU Practitioners Network (PN), FMO, ECDPM and DFCD will facilitate a dialogue among key relevant stakeholders, based on recent research around public-private collaborations and blended finance, focusing on different examples of climate finance and food value chain investment processes. It features experiences emerging from Europe, Africa and international public-private cooperation on the cooperation of financial institutions to increase access to finance for current marginalized actors in least developed countries (small-scale farmers, women, SMEs, Youth, etc.). (eg. GCA-AfDB Africa Adaptation Acceleration Program; FAO-ECDPM AgrInvest project; EDFIs’ guarantee schemes, assessment of climate risks and partnerships with donors and private sector).
