The agriculture and fisheries sectors with their upstream and downstream industries are the key contributors to economic growth in the world’s rural and coastal regions. Smart and sustainable management of bio-based value chains also plays a vital role in food security, healthy diets and resilience to climate change. At the same time they produce valuable inputs for innovative bio-economy pathways that are critical for greening the economy.  The EIB supports the rural economy – generating benefits for both private enterprises and society as a whole – through its long-term financing and provision of technical advice and assistance

To implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, developing countries will have to increasingly rely on domestic finance for investment in agriculture. As public funding for agriculture decreases, the role of private investment and, in particular, smallholder farmers, needs to be scaled up to achieve sustainable food security. To stimulate this process, governments focus more on fostering an enabling environment for responsible private investment. Greater attention must be placed on the quality of agricultural investment preparation and implementation, as well as on policies and instruments to lower risk and strengthen the confidence of investors in the long term.
