Livestock and Climate
Research activities: Financing the transition to low-emission and resilient livestock agrifood systems
Currently, a range of factors limit livestock agrifood systems’ access to climate finance. Researchers are working closely with investors to design and implement a process for identifying investments that yield resilience, emissions reduction and social inclusivity goals in addition to generating favorable economic returns under social and climate risks, thus building investor confidence. Monitoring tools enable partners to verify benefits, contributing to continued and expanded financial flows, while partnerships with impact investors, international finance institutions, and climate funds supports scaling up.
