BLENDED CLIMATE FINANCE • SUSTAINABLE FOOD SYSTEMS • AGRICULTURAL POLICY
“We need to leverage blended finance to increase the adoption of sustainable agricultural practices and consequently transform the food system to meet the needs of the growing population.”
Jonathan is an economist who works on on leveraging blended finance to scale up the adoption of sustainable agricultural practices for climate change adaptation. Broadly, his work intends to help countries achieve nationally determined commitments of greenhouse gas emissions reductions under the Paris Agreement. He is currently an associate research fellow at the German Development Institute and a member of the sustainable food systems program of the United Nations 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns.
The Alliance of Bioversity International and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) delivers research-based solutions that harness agricultural biodiversity and sustainably transform food systems to improve people’s lives. Alliance solutions address the global crises of malnutrition, climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental degradation.
The Alliance is part of CGIAR, a global research partnership for a food-secure future.
