Financing for Development Side Event

Sometimes things happen very quickly at the Crop Trust. In an effort to diversify the funding mechanisms of the Crop Trust we have been working with Deutsche Bank on a new private-public initiative.

The Crop Trust’s Marie Haga presented a side event entitled Private Funding for Food Security: The Investment Sharing Facility. The Investment Sharing Facility is an innovative a social impact investment fund we have put together with Deutsche Bank.

Institutions and households invest into an equity mutual fund complying with environmental, social and governance criteria. The Crop Trust receives part of the returns to secure global crop diversity for current and future generations.

A bandwagon in the mainstream

In a greenhouse at the Antsirabe Field Centre of the National Centre for Applied Research in Rural Development (FOFIFA), breeders sprout potential new cold-tolerant varieties to test in the coming cold season. The international research center AfricaRice has joined the effort to introduce locally adapted lines that include parents from other cold regions. Most rice is acutely sensitive to variations in temperature during the phase when grain is formed: if it is too hot or too cold, the plant produces fewer grains. The aim of this research is to breed Malagasy rice that yields better when colder conditions hit the highlands.
