How metrics, digital tools, and public-private incentives and investment can help scale up agroecological transitions

Although business and private sector stakeholders are increasingly aligning to principles of agroecological food systems, there are also growing concerns among actors on motivation, incentives, investment and transparency by the private sector.

The Agroecological TRANSITIONS programme asks the question of how to scale up agroecology through improved metrics, digital tools and public and private incentives and investment. This programme takes a very broad approach to transforming food systems, with a plurality of outcome-based methods. By considering both strengths and trade-offs of different viable options in particular contexts, TRANSITIONS aims to take the best of all of them to scale up innovations, principles and approaches that break existing barriers and lock-ins.

The Agroecological transitions for building resilient and inclusive agricultural and food systems (TRANSITIONS): Private sector incentives and investments (PSii) project financed by the European Union aims to contribute to filling the persistent knowledge gaps. The goal of the overall TRANSITIONS program is to better align policy, investment, and technical support to enable climate-informed agroecological transitions by farmers in low- and middle- income countries. This will be achieved through the development and adoption of holistic metrics for food and agricultural systems performance, inclusive digital tools and transparent private sector engagement to foster incentives and leverage investment.

The PSii Project will focus on three commodity supply chains
  • Sustainable rice production in the Mekong River Delta, Vietnam
  • Sustainable cacao production in the Amazonas Peru
  • Sustainable wheat production in Oromia Ethiopia
