Barriers to inclusive sustainable finance in a landscape context

20 Dec 2019

Agriculture, forestry and other land uses are central to the implementation of the sustainable development goals (SDGs). They may also contribute up to 20% of emission reductions needed to achieve the Paris mitigation target. Notably, nearly 60% of food production is produced by smallholders (<20 ha) who are undoubtedly the most vulnerable to climate change. The CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA), together with Tropenbos International have organized a series of events aiming to enrich our discussion on barriers to inclusive sustainable finance and we reach the most vulnerable and marginalized.
