There is a need to scale-up and accelerate finance for agriculture and food systems globally, and to shift them to a low-carbon and climate-resilient pathway by 2030.
In collaboration with AGRA’s Agribusiness Dealroom, as part of the Africa Food Systems Forum (AGRF), the CLIC Connector is organizing the session Climate-proofing our food for the future to showcase eight agribusinesses to interested investors and funders.
