Agricultural Finance & Climate Risks Track

Summer Academy

Overview

As a war in eastern Europe unfolds, the rural and agricultural finance community is now confronted with a profound shock to food and commodity prices while many export markets and trade finance options are still disrupted. At the same time, the pervasive effects of climate change in exposed regions are increasingly evident in recurring yield shocks and natural disasters. Counterparts in advanced country export markets are also adopting sustainability principles while established development partners redefine financing modalities.
