The AGRI3 Fund

Rabobank, UNEP, FMO, IDH

The AGRI3 fund is the result of a partnership between UN Environment Programme, The Dutch Development Bank (FMO), IDH: The Sustainable Trade Initiative and the Rabobank Group. Goal of the fund is to offer de-risking arrangements (e.g. first loss guarantees) to commercial banks to finance high-risk investments in Sustainable Agriculture, Forest Protection and Improved Rural Livelihoods by (smallholder) farmers, input providers, traders, processors and other relevant Food & Agri value chain actors. The fund started with EUR 80M of anchor investments from the Dutch Government and Rabobank. We are honoured with a recent commitment by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to provide an additional USD 13M towards the fund.
