Sustainable forestry management strikes a balance between demand for forest products and the preservation of healthy forests over the long term. It is crucial for maintaining the economic and environmental benefits of forests.
The Second Public Call for Proposals under the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) was officially opened on October 29, 2012. During the 45-day period of the Call, IFC will be accepting investment proposals for agribusiness projects
IFC has made agribusiness a priority because of its potential for broad development impact and especially strong role in poverty reduction. We combine investments and advisory services to help the sector address higher demand and escalating food prices in an environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive way. We also support global initiatives for sustainable production of agricultural commodities.
