RESERVE THE DATE FOR CTA'S NEXT FRONTIER FINANCE CONFERENCE!

Word is spreading about CTA's upcoming event on Blending4Ag. If this is new to you, the event signifies a high-level dialogue on bolstering agricultural finance through innovative partnership, and we hope it will accelerate the development and implementation of new financing mechanisms for smallholder agriculture.

Blending4Ag is a new strategy that permits public funds to be leveraged for unlocking private finance for farmers. The event, organized in collaboration with several of the leading organizations in this domain, will accommodate decision-makers from international development organizations, commercial banks, foundations, investment funds, microfinance institutions, central banks, agri-value chain stakeholders and farmers' organizations.  It will be held in Brussels, on 7 and 8 November, 2016.

We consider you relevant to this event, and we hope you will support us in achieving its objectives.  You can read more on the logic of Blended Finance for agriculture and register for the event by clicking on Blending4Ag Newsletter.

Thank you!
