Financing the transformation of food systems under a changing climate

June 6, 2019

Project details

As climate change affects food systems, governments, food and agriculture companies, as well as public and private investors need to better identify and address the numerous climate-related risks. In fact, the global food system will need to produce food a lot more efficiently and sustainably to achieve the SDG. In 2019, KOIS was commissioned to explore legal and innovative finance solutions to design strategies for public & private capital to support the transformation of the food sector.

Transforming food systems with climate-smart investments at scale

We will need to produce food more efficiently and sustainably to achieve the SDGs and meet the 2°C climate commitments. As climate change affects food systems, governments, food and agriculture companies, and public and private investors need to better identify and address the numerous climate- related risks. This can also be an inflection point to take advantage of new investment opportunities. In fact, the transformation to low-carbon and resilient food systems comes with interesting prospects .

Climate-smart investments to transform food systems, however, are not yet at scale. This will require addressing core market failures to unlock private sector financing from food and agriculture companies. Domestic and international financial institutions, as well as specialized investors will also have a role to play.

In 2019, CCAFS commissioned KOIS to explore policy options, innovative financial solutions, and strategies for how government, food and agriculture companies, public and private donors and investors can support the transformation to low-carbon and resilient food systems.
