Mobilizing trillions: Financing for impact, leveraging the pivotal role of Public Development Banks

17:30 to 18:30 CEST

This official Pre-Summit session of the UN Food System Summit will hear from leaders from the public sector, Public Development Banks (PDBs), private investors, farmers’ organizations, and others to discuss how PDBs – responsible for over two thirds of formal financing for agriculture – can catalyse more green and inclusive investments in food and agriculture, and channel more financing towards small-scale producers.

PDBs have the potential in particular to unlock significant funds, including by better enabling and de-risking private investments. These investments can ultimately help small-scale farmers and rural businesses increase resilience, improve livelihoods and contribute to the goal of inclusive and sustainable food systems that work for everyone. This official Pre-Summit session will highlight actions and commitments from actors and leaders around the world to scale-up green and inclusive investments across the sector through better, more coordinated action, including to benefit the small-scale producers and agri-food entrepreneurs that produce, transform, and market the majority of the food consumed in low and middle-income countries.
