Addressing Financing for Agriculture: Ensuring a triple dividend for smallholders
The provision of adequate and effective financing remains a critical issue in achieving a triple dividend in agriculture. Financing needs are particularly acute for smallholder agriculturalists in developing countries.
This paper provides an overview of the challenge before the international community, the financing needs of smallholders, current sources of financing and mechanisms for delivering these funds. It concludes by providing a number of suggestions for mobilizing additional investment that will enable further progress towards the realization of a "triple benefit" in agriculture activities, with a particular focus on the unique needs of smallholders.
