AgFunder (2022) 2022 Africa AgriFoodTech Investment Report # 32 p
  • In the past five years, early-stage investors have pumped more than $1 billion into African startups innovating for the food and agriculture industry, achieving a record-breaking $482 million in 2021 alone. 
  • That was a 250% jump year-over-year, but still represents less than 1% of global agrifoodtech investment.
IDS & IPES-Food (2022) Agroecology, regenerative agriculture, and nature-based solutions: Competing framings of food system sustainability in global policy and funding spaces. # 64 p.
  • ‘Agroecology’, ‘nature-based solutions’ and ‘regenerative agriculture’ are competing concepts for attention. But, while often grouped together, they can imply very different things. ‘Nature-based solutions’ are rapidly gaining traction in international summits. But the concept lacks an agreed definition and a transformative vision. And it is often bundled with risky, unproven carbon offsetting schemes. The result is dilution of food system transformation.

USAID: Transformative Pathways Toward a Climate-Resilient Agricultural, Food, and Nutrition System

26 October 2022
A Public Consultation Ahead of the 27th Conference of Parties

Please find an agenda for the meeting in this link.

In the lead-up to the 2022 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 27th Conference of Parties (COP27), BIFAD hosted its 187th public meeting focused on the ongoing BIFAD-commissioned study on systemic solutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation in agricultural, nutrition, and food systems.

The study—guided by the BIFAD Subcommittee on Systemic Solutions for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in Agriculture, Nutrition, and Food Systems and expected to be finalized in spring 2023—aims to inform BIFAD’s advice to USAID on program design and targets to achieve transformative, systemic change and climate finance scaling for the agriculture, food, and nutrition sectors.

Authors of the report presented and discuss their preliminary findings related to the following:
  • Climate-resilient pathways for inclusive, transformative systemic change in agricultural, nutrition, and food systems;
  • Priority systems for inclusive transformation in food, agriculture, and nutrition;
  • Barriers to inclusive transformation in agricultural, nutrition, and food systems;
  • Priority leverage points for transformative systemic change; and
  • Climate finance solutions to catalyze inclusive adaptation and mitigation actions in the agricultural, food, and nutrition sector.
Following the presentation, members of the subcommittee, BIFAD, USAID, and public participants commented and react to the working paper
