Building Rural and Agricultural Infrastructure

13 October, 2014

 This session will discuss the role of infrastructure for rural and agricultural development, which broadly covers all elements needed to create an enabling environment for rural and agricultural market development and access to finance. The panel will explore how large public private partnerships are forged to support infrastructure, the role of impact investors, as well as how to encourage local equity investment and buy-in to a holistic rural and agricultural development initiative. 

Panelists will include Jenn Pryce, President and CEO of Calvert Foundation, and Innocent Rutamu, Board Director from Erasmus Investment International, which recently facilitated a “game changing” $1.5 billion of new investment in the small country of Macedonia to increase food production and fisheries and is now adapting its approach to supporting rural and agricultural infrastructure development in Rwanda.
