During the latest Global Landscape Forum, CGIAR FTA, Tropenbos International and CIFOR organized the session “Innovating Finance to Overcome Current Barriers Towards Sustainable Landscapes”.
Seven panelists representing different sections of the finance ‘value chain’ discussed during the session the strategies and the problems international funds have to reach smallholder farmers and why it is difficult to upscale these mechanisms. A debate on what steps are needed to bridge the funding gaps for scaling up inclusive and sustainable local agricultural and forestry operations.
The session capitalized on the eDialogue of the draft paper “Scaling of innovative finance for sustainable landscapes” accessible on the GLFx platform.
