IFC has made agribusiness a priority as part of its commitment to help reduce poverty and improve peoples' lives. IFC provides financial and advisory support to the agribusiness sector along the full value chain directly to companies and indirectly through intermediaries (e.g. traders, financial institutions). IFC is working in areas such as sequestering carbon, managing watersheds, preserving biodiversity, and producing renewable energy resources as well as with clients to strengthen their supply chains by helping small farmers increase productivity and apply appropriate environmental, social, and quality standards.
