INCATEMA Consulting & Engineering participates in the Forum for Dialogue about new investment models in agriculture and inclusive financing, organised by FAO for the private sector.

The high level conference organised by FAO Headquarters in Rome on October the 14th 2015 focused on analysing and designing innovative strategies for public-private partnerships that promote agriculture investment globally in order to face challenges and identify opportunities to achieve more inclusive and efficient rural development financing models.
INCATEMA delegation participating in this forum contributed to the analysis of these challenges from the personal vision of our company, who delivers high quality services on all the steps of the agrifood value chain. Development is therefore understood for us as the sum of all stakeholders’ will to contribute to achieving a final agrifood production with a fair quality, appropriate and adapted to consumers’ needs.
The forum counted on the participation of FAO General Director José Graziano da Silva and was coordinated by FAO Partnership and Capacity Development Office who leads FAO’s effort to offer innovative intervention models promoting FAO cooperation with the private sector in order to enhance FAO’s aim of assuring global food security efficiently.
Activities were grouped in two parallel debate rounds where private sector participants adopted a leading role to support FAO in:
·         Developing partnerships between public and private organizations to overcome low financing levels for agriculture activities globally analysing recent trends from success cases where partnerships were promoted.
·         Agriculture financing strategies’ analysis, particularly for small and medium producers; identifying the causes of such a “rural finance deficit”; analysing informal financial markets that can benefit from this deficit, identifying innovative models that contribute to inclusive rural development overcoming the existing gap on access to financial instruments.
In all cases, conclusions drawn from debates went beyond mere collaboration opportunities identification to focus on joint strategies issuing from synergies on objectives of both parties.
