Investing in climate-smart agriculture
Duncan Gromko, UNIQUE forestry and land use
Climate-smart agriculture has enormous potential to feed more people, boost farmers' incomes, and address climate change. Many of these agricultural technologies and practices are used by farmers with proven success. Yet their adoption is not widespread and investment in climate-smart agriculture lags behind investment in clean energy and transportation systems. This panel will explore barriers to CSA investment and how CSA can learn from successes in other sectors.

A number of investor groups: Moringa Fund, Acumen Fund, Land Degradation Neutrality Fund, Athelia Ecosphere, etc. Many companies that we are working with in the US and outside the US are implementing these practices. And UNIQUE is managing a Climate Smart Agribusiness Investment Accelerator that is facilitating investment in CSA.
