Agricultural investment funds for developing countries


Agricultural investment funds, which have experienced significant growth in numbers and volume in recent years, have underscored public and private sectors’ interest to help address the resource constraints for achieving food security. Moreover, the growing attractiveness of agricultural investment projects as profitable business ventures has played a role in the
emergence and growth of such funds, especially in light of higher agricultural prices and improved business climates that favour longer-term investments. This publication provides insight into the nature and operations of these funds and draws lessons for  development agencies, governments and investors.
