Supporting responsible investments in agriculture and food systems
Increasing investments in agriculture is crucial to end hunger and poverty by 2030. At the same time, not all kinds of investments are equally beneficial. In order to generate sustainable benefits for all, it is essential that investments are responsible – addressing the needs of communities, farmers, investors and the broader environment. Currently, many factors impede responsible investment. FAO has developed a needs-driven Umbrella Programme that addresses these challenges. The programme will provide support to enhance responsible investment in agriculture and food systems. This document provides an overview of the Umbrella Programme.
