Sustainable agriculture

Climate change, population growth and urbanisations threaten the food security of millions of people. Many developing countries continue to import food because the productivity and crops of their own agriculture are inadequate.

Improving the productivity of agriculture in a sustainable manner creates jobs and raises the income of people dependent on farming.

Finnfund invests in the entire value chain of agriculture with the aim of improving primary farm production, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. Finnfund has invested 61 million euros in agribusinesses and funds. Read more here.
