[MEET US] Making Green Finance Count: Impact Investing for Indonesia’s Agricultural Sector

by | Oct 19, 2017 | News/Event Page, Upcoming Events/Meet Us

There has been significant momentum behind public-private partnerships for “greening” supply chains in Indonesia’s agricultural sector. Can these models result in incentives that benefit both big and small players, and are these incentives enough to compel others in the industry to follow suit?

SIIA and WRI Indonesia present a workshop on emerging public-private partnerships in Indonesia’s agricultural sector that aim to make independent smallholders more sustainable while rewarding investors with financial, environmental, and social benefits. This workshop is supported by the Tropical Forest Alliance 2020.

Join us for a Panel session focusing on major models for supporting independent smallholders in Indonesia and a Moderated Discussion looking at how to make these models more bankable and therefore more attractive to a larger market. Finally, a lunchtime Investment Marketplace will allow participants to get a closer look at these models and interact with model implementers.
