Creating sustainable agribusiness for St Lucia

Creating sustainable agribusiness for St Lucia

The island of St. Lucia, located in the Windward island chain of the Caribbean, has traditionally depended heavily on bananas production as a driver of exports and GDP. However, the combination of loss of access to preferential EU markets and an accelerated impact of climate change, specifically increased temperatures and changes in rainfall patterns, has resulted in a significant decline in the island’s agricultural sector and fish catch, negatively impacting both livelihoods of rural populations and heightening exposure to food security issues. To enhance the productivity and sustainability of livelihoods in local agro production, particularly in the context of climate change, two parallel but inter-related changes are needed.

Avocado and quinoa in the Andes: small farmers exporting and improving resilience to climate change

Did you ever wonder where your avocado and quinoa come from? Quite possibly from small-holder farmers in the Peruvian Andes. Although these delicious foods eventually make it to your store’s shelves in the US, Europe, Asia, and elsewhere in the Americas, producing, harvesting and exporting them is getting more complicated all the time due to the effects of climate change.

Early Lessons Learned in SIINC Pay-for-Success Projects

Early Lessons Learned in SIINC Pay-for-Success Projects

An innovative financing mechanism, known as Social Impact Incentives or SIINC, has begun to take form and test its first experiences in Latin America, through the collaboration between the MIF, Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the German firm Roots of Impact.  SIINCs are financial incentives paid to emerging, high-impact social enterprises for reaching selected results and impact goals that are negotiated between the social enterprise and the outcome payer (in this case, MIF). The payments allow the company to improve revenues and profitability  and thus attractiveness to other impact investors  in exchange for achieving social impact, measured and verified by an independent evaluator.
