IFC's Strategy in Agribusiness

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.
