The purpose of this paper is to outline practical steps and recommendations for deploying blended finance in food and agriculture to achieve mobilization of additional finance and development impact – both at scale. After a brief overview of the current landscape of agriculture finance and financing needs, the document lays out the rationale for using blended finance as one structuring tool to achieve scale in terms of both mobilization and impact. It then presents recommendations for how the donor community, impact investors and practitioners working on agriculture finance can more effectively use blended finance in this domain.
