A group of AgriFinance experts and practitioners from member and non-member institutions, to discuss experiences and document good practices and innovations in the field. One main objective of this event is to promote learning and sharing of good practice examples that help members improve their offering and better serve the Agri-SMEs.

The event is organizing the next member-only meeting. Recognizing the importance of climate risks in agriculture and the role of agriculture in total emissions, the meeting on the topic of financing climate smart agriculture. Climate change and climate risks are the main reason for the perceived high risks in agricultural finance. Climate smart agriculture provides ways to improve productivity while at the same time making agriculture more resilient to climatic risks and less poluting. This also reduces the riskiness of clients in the agricultural sector that invest in such technologies. Climate risk mitigation and adaptation are becoming key focus areas for financial institutions, particularly when it comes to lending to agriculture, a sector that is vulnerable to climatic risks. Climate smart agriculture, improve risk management but also provides new opportunities for financial institutions to expand their lending into a new area.

The event meeting in April will start by presenting the case for climate smart agriculture finance. Following this introduction, a panel of two to three members will discuss their experiences in promoting climate smart agricultural finance focusing on both challenges and achievements. After the panel, a moderated discussion amongst CoP members will follow.
