Addressing Supply and Demand Constraints in Scaling Green Finance for Agri-SMEs
Achieving zero hunger and reducing global carbon emissions by 45% in 2030 implies more targeted ‘green’ investments into the missing middle of agricultural value chains.

This publication explores possible approaches to address these challenges, including developing partnerships with local financial service providers (FSPs) and incentivizing the adoption of green finance by FSPs and agricultural SMEs.
