The GSFC, held annually since 2011, is a distinctive, premier international platform for discussing innovations in financial services and business models for sustainability.
During the upcoming 2018 conference, delegates will examine financing solutions that serve the changing requirements of businesses and help in closing the funding gap for modernizing and decarbonizing the economy. The delegates will explore latest trends in increasing financial inclusion and examine sustainable financing for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as for large-scale projects. They will also deliberate on an integrated approach to mobilize and manage public and private investments for transforming the world for the better.
We are pleased to announce that the next Cracking the Nut conference will take place on June 12-13, 2018 in Antigua, Guatemala at the Hotel Soleil La Antigua and will focus on encouraging the uptake of new technologies for agriculture and access to finance, in a way that promotes resilience. Connexus Corporation is working with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), USAID, Feed the Future, Catholic Relief Services (CRS), and Chemonics International to organize a two-day learning event and technology fair, which will highlight the broad range of technologies and approaches available to mitigate and adapt to global changes related to rural and agricultural development.
By bringing together some of the leading experts in sustainable agriculture from the private sector, governments, donors and development practitioners, we will identify ways to work together more efficiently and effectively to address global hunger and climate change. As always, the conference benefits from an Advisory Committee, comprised of some of the top public and private sector change agents in agribusiness and technology development, finance, and investment, who will identify interesting speakers and panelists and will oversee a competitive selection of presenters for break-out sessions.
This two-day event will bring together approximately 300 of the world’s leading industry thought leaders from private sector companies, financial institutions, investors, donors, and development practitioners to discuss “tough nuts” related to promoting agriculture technology adoption and resilience.
