By Marina Ruete on October 29, 2014

Investment in farmland has been in the spotlight for a number of years and is often seen as a series of “land grabs.”

Yet there are other ways to invest in agriculture. This policy brief looks at the role of cooperatives as a vehicle to increase investment in the agriculture sector. It demonstrates how and why cooperatives are an important business model for promoting inclusive agricultural investment.

The IISD series of policy briefs on investment in agriculture is generously supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
