Agricultural Finance & Climate Risks Track

Summer Academy


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.


In this track we will cover the key emerging themes impacting the rural and agricultural finance community. We will present practical financing solutions and insurance models. This includes a deep dive in the modelling of climate risk and its management in exposed rural areas.
