By invitation only
With a focus on Africa and on SMEs, this Food First Session will discuss what financial and policy incentives can stimulate best practices by Dutch businesses interested in investing in African agriculture. Representatives of the private sector will give examples of farming innovations and of current approaches in the financial industry for the greening of agriculture, and Dutch government officials will outline what policies and instruments are in place to help those (e.g. the Dutch Good Growth Fund). An interactive debate will follow, with participants from the business, government, civil society and research communities.
ECDPM’s Jeske van Seters and Hanne Knaepen co-organised this event together with FoodFIRST and AgriProFocus.
