Responsible Investments in Agriculture and Food Systems
A practical handbook for parliamentarians and parliamentary advisors
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the complexity, fragility, and interconnectedness of our global food systems. It has underscored the urgency of changes to the way agricultural investments are made.
To ensure that investments in agriculture and food systems lead to beneficial outcomes, they must be responsible and directed toward achieving social, economic, cultural, and environmental benefits.
The handbook provides a catalogue of prescriptions, through guidance notes, examples of good practices, and very practical indications that members of parliament and parliamentary advisors can use to create a reliable, coherent, and transparent “enabling environment” in several areas related to investment in agriculture and food systems. It sets out key stages of processes and mechanisms for MPs and advisors to consider while promoting responsible investment in agriculture and food systems
