Sustainable Agriculture

Global population growth and improved economic conditions create increasing demand for food and agricultural raw materials. At the same time, agricultural activities are one of the most significant sources of carbon emissions and water use, and climate change is set to have severe impacts on food production and nutrition across the globe.

CPI research identifies pathways to implement more productive and climate-resilient agricultural practices that incorporate low emission standards and sustainable agriculture techniques. The research, analysis, and business models we develop support the scaling of sustainable agriculture practices worldwide.

We promote partnerships with public and private entities to develop financial mechanisms to fund the adoption of sustainable agricultural practices as well as work directly with policymakers in the design of more effective policies to spur sustainable growth in the agricultural sector.
