Agricultural investment

01 August 2013

Investments in agriculture are urgently needed; with agriculture being the main source of livelihoods for people living in hunger, the importance of this sector to poverty alleviation is clear. The kind of investments needed, however, is hotly debated.

The challenge is how to channel external investment to support investment by smallholders themselves, thus serving to alleviate hunger, reduce poverty, develop local economies and support environmental functions and biodiversity.

CIDSE is actively engaged in monitoring and responding to current debates concerning agricultural investment, and holds particular concerns about the increasing emergence of initiatives such as the G8 New Alliance and others seemingly fuelling current trends in government and donor thinking which gives the private sector an increasingly significant role both as investors but also as a policy stakeholder.
