Another idea that may be interesting for the parties is the possibility to combine multilateral funding for sustainable agricultural activities. There are multilateral funds that support biodiversity conservation, climate change mitigation and adaption, and capacity building, such as the Global Environmental Fund, Green Climate Fund, and Adaptation Fund. If the planned agriculture activities are relevant to any of those themes above, the parties may consider applying for additional funding and repay with the positive environmental and social results that would be generated regardless. In this context, the parties may need to arrange in their investment contract, which area is for such funding and their relevant rights and responsibilities.
