Sustainable Value Chain Finance Workshop Report

The Rainforest Alliance and the Citi Foundation Sustainable Value Chain Finance Workshop held on April 20, 2011, in New York City, brought together actors in agriculture value chains -- representing buyers, exporters, retailers, producers, insurers, the financial sector, civil society and development partners. Although individual participants had begun to discuss sustainability and value chain finance in their own work, this was the first time that a diverse group of stakeholders from different parts of the value chain had gathered to discuss the topic.

The Sustainable Value Chain Finance Workshop Report contains an overview of the workshop topics including value chain finance framework and models, the necessary enabling conditions for sustainable value chain finance to take root and conclusions and recommendations made by the workshop participants.
