(mainly SSA and Asia): GDP
growth through agriculture
1. Raise agricultural productivity
C. Urbanized countries (e.g.,
Brazil, Ukraine, Russia):
Contribution to global food
supply, reduced rural poverty,
growth in export crops and
increased food safety
Food
B. Transforming countries (e.g.,
China, India, Indonesia,
Morocco): Higher value
products and linkages with the
non-farm economy
Financial Crisis
Differentiated approaches for:
2. Link farmers to markets and
strengthen value chains
3. Reduce risk and vulnerability

IFC’s Strategic Objectives in Agriculture
 Contribute to Enhancing Food Security (e.g. increased investment,
enhanced productivity)
 Contribute to Enhancing Economic Development and Inclusiveness (e.g.
focus on smallholders, women, risk management)
 Make Environmental and Social Sustainability a business driver (e.g.,
resource utilization and efficiency)
3
Areas of Focus
 Enhance productivity through improved access to key agricultural
inputs, dissemination of best practices, investment in modern and
sustainable farming
 Help mitigate price and weather-related shocks through
developing and rolling out risk management products
 Support agri SMEs access to finance, access to market and access
to technology and inputs through agricultural and financial
intermediaries and service providers
 Reduce post harvest waste and losses through improved
agricultural practices, logistics and infrastructure

 National policy (international conventions, agricultural policy)
 Legal framework/Enforcement (labor law, environmental regs, land
rights/tenure)
 Physical and human infrastructure (transport, health, education)
Sector/Project-level
 Workforce (wages, working conditions, sub-contractor suppliers)
 Client reputation
 Land ownership/tenure/disputes
 Current and previous land use (no primary forest conversion)
 Environmental assets/services (biodiversity, water, etc)
