Revolutionising agricultural finance: a post Fin4Ag conference special report
The Fin4Ag conference was held in Nairobi, Kenya, July 2014, specifically focusing on agri-financing. This conference report (PDF) by The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) provides a valuable overview of the event, which covered new thinking around the three broad themes of innovative tools, a new legal and regulatory framework, and cross-cutting issues in agri-value chain finance. Specific issues covered include warehouse receipt financing, the progress of African commodity exchanges and alternative sources of finance.
