New handbook provides key tools to parliamentarians to foster responsible investment in Africa

15 December 2020, Accra – A handbook to guide parliamentarians in creating enabling environments for more and better investments in agriculture and food systems was launched today in Africa by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD).
 
To end poverty and hunger by 2030, the world needs an additional USD 265 billion in annual investments, both from the public and private sectors. Of this, USD 140 billion must focus on agriculture. Parliamentarians are key to help direct these investments toward increasing sustainable productivity, raising incomes, creating job opportunities and ultimately lifting the rural poor out of poverty and hunger.
 
“Parliamentarians can promote responsible public investments, and they can also create a conducive environment for responsible private investments, attracting larger scale agribusiness investors while ensuring safeguards are in place to protect human rights and the environment,” FAO’s Assistant Director-General and Regional Representative for Africa Abebe Haile-Gabriel said.
