Inclusive agricultural investment: sharing lessons from experience

Man-​Kwun Chan

Briefing, 4 pages

The global surge in agricultural investments needs ‘inclusive’ alternatives to large-scale land acquisitions — alternatives that respond to local aspirations and share benefits with local stakeholders. But as yet there is little agreement on what inclusiveness might mean in practice, or how to overcome the considerable commercial and policy constraints opposing its implementation. In early 2013 IIED brought together asset management companies, global agri-food companies, agri-business consultancies, donor organisations, development agencies, international NGOs, southern governments and southern farmers’ organisations to discuss these issues and to kick-start a longer-term multi-stakeholder dialogue. This briefing shares key learning and experience from the workshop, particularly focusing on practical insights that are most relevant to private sector stakeholders.
