Resilient Farm and Food System Finance Webinar
The Clean Portfolio Project, Croatan Institute, and the Organic Agriculture Revitalization Strategy (OARS) hosted a webinar exploring models to finance resilient food systems and regenerative, organic agriculture across asset classes.
This event took place on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, from 12:30-2:00 pm EST / 9:30-11:00 am PST. A recording of the webinar is available for on-demand viewing at your convenience.
The Clean Portfolio Project is developing total portfolio approaches to fossil-free investing in integrated climate solutions. Intentional investments in food and farming systems can rebuild soil health, sequester carbon, and make farming operations more resilient to the impacts of climate change.
On this webinar, learn how investors working in various asset classes, such as fixed income, private debt, and real assets, are making food and agriculture investments that generate positive impacts on communities and the climate. The conversation will begin with a framing discussion on new mechanisms for financing "regenerative" agriculture with Delta Institute, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Croatan Institute featuring investors representing varying asset classes, including Community Capital Management, Farmland LP, and Iroquois Valley Farmland REIT.
