Catalyzing Climate Finance for Low-Carbon Agriculture Enterprises

Rural households in low- and middle-income countries working in the agriculture sector feed much of the world, bear little responsibility for driving climate change, and are being disproportionately impacted by climate-related shocks. Climate finance represents a critical opportunity to bring investment and innovations to agricultural settings to improve resilience and low-carbon development.

Join an all-star panel of climate investors and researchers, moderated by Jonathan Phillips from Duke University, for a discussion about the climate mitigation and adaptation impacts of low-carbon agricultural technologies and enterprises, and how pioneering models aim to leverage those impacts to mobilize climate finance for scale.
