Fri, April 17, 2015; 11:45 - 13:00
Location: SBS, Classroom 2
Which key actors should support the critical technical assistance required to develop a promising market before it’s commercially viable? Using real scenarios from current efforts in the emerging smallholder finance sector, session contributors will create a model for incentivizing value chain actors—including farmers, corporate, government and philanthropic stakeholders—to make market-building investments. Attendees will also discuss how to price and finance investments as they evolve over time.
