Impact investments in agricultural and forestry smallholders: it can be done!

Impact investments in agricultural and forestry smallholders: it can be done!

the Netherlands - 19 September, 2017

A growing number of investors aspire to make the transition from ‘doing no harm’ towards ‘doing good’, said Tropenbos International director René Boot in his opening statement at the seminar Towards inclusive investments and business models for improved land governance and livelihoods. “The positive news is that this can be done.” The seminar yielded a rich harvest of cases, ideas and conditions on how this transition can take place.

The seminar, organized by Tropenbos International, FMO – Dutch Development Bank, KIT Royal Tropical Institute and Hivos, was held on September 14th, in Ede, the Netherlands. The participants discussed the Working paper 1.0 Improving the positive impacts of investments on smallholder livelihoods and the landscapes they live in and provided many suggestions and ideas for the way forward.
