Green finance in the Latin American coffee sector

Thursday, March 3, 2022

*16h-17h CET on 03 March 2022

About the session
This webinar, co-organized with the International Trade Centre (ITC), brings together a panel of representatives from both the supply and demand side of green finance targeting agri-SMEs and farmers’ organizations in the coffee sector in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The discussion will build on the latest edition of the Coffee Guide that was published by ITC in October, which highlighted the significant disconnect between the financial products available to operators in the sector in connection with mainstream sources of green finance, and the needs of these same operators, notably SMEs. It will further look at positive trends and examples that can be built on or scaled up to improve demand/supply alignment for green finance for small and medium-sized coffee sector operators.

This webinar will take place in Spanish with interpretation to English.
