Executive Panel: Agricultural and Financial Systems’ Adaptation to Climate Change

Experts from the development and financial supervision sectors discussed some of the challenges and solutions for farmers from emerging markets and developing economies in accessing finance to adapt to climate change.

Key takeaways from this insightful conversation include the need to:

  • Build a common vision and establish a dialogue between supervisors and the market
  • Increase access to finance for small holder farmers through safe digital solutions
  • Implement gender-inclusive policies to address specific barriers women face
