Financing sustainable agriculture and mitigation: Smallholders and the Inari system of finance. CCAFS Working Paper No. 52

Abstract

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 initiatives.
  • 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.
