Key messages in this Working Paper are:
- Smallholder farmers and forestry producers have a crucial role to play
in food security, sustainable land use and emissions reductions
- Producers and investors alike require appropriate incentive structures
to facilitate participation in sustainable land use initiatives.
- A networked financing approach—Inari—may provide an innovative
response to financing sustainable land use via intelligent
diversification and addressing the finance needs of smallholders.
- Diversification requires the development of a more holistic risk model
for investment in smallholder agriculture and forestry, which will be
tested in a number of developing countries in 2013 and 2014.
