Blended finance can play a significant role both on the de-risking and on the pipeline generation sides of the challenge. Over the past years, SAFIN has dedicated great attention to the role of blended solutions in agri-SME finance, as documented on our resources page. This year’s focus on green finance for agri-SMEs in SAFIN’s learning agenda provides an opportunity to look at the specific contribution that blending can provide to aligning different sources of capital around a green and agri-SME focused investment agenda.

This Learning Note presents some key learnings from this year’s activities related to green finance, organized around two key messages or entry points for practitioners related to the potential benefits of blending solutions for pipeline development and for the development of green agri-business models.
