Redirecting Private Finance for the UK’s Post-Brexit Agroecological Transition

As the UK exits the European Union’s Common Agricultural Policy, foundations associated with the Farming the Future collective have been exploring new ways to deploy investment capital from their endowments to supplement their grantmaking in order to help finance a more rapid transition to agroecology. As part of this, the New Economics Foundation and Croatan Institute have been working collaboratively on a new initiative called “Redirecting Finance,” to explore obstacles and opportunities associated with bank financing and private lending to regenerative, agroecological farms and enterprises in the broader value chain that work with them. This session brings together various leaders involved in this inquiry from banking and philanthropy.
