On 20-21 October, Rome, more than 70 donors and investors met in Rome in advance of the Committee on World Food Security deliberations to discuss how to boost food system transformation through investing in agroecology.
This meeting was attended by government members of the Agroecology Coalition, bilateral and multilateral development cooperation agencies, multilateral development banks and financial institutions, private philanthropic organizations and impact investors.
It demonstrated both the robust political endorsement as well as a strong appetite to better understand how we can link the different funding opportunities to the various financial needs of an agroecological food system transformation.
We discussed opportunities and challenges for investments towards agroecology and presented the new Agroecology Finance Assessment Tool.
