All you need to know about the new financial tool of the Moringa Fund for forestry and agriculture development at landscape scale with smallholders!
The Moringa Fund, ONF International, FFEM, AFD, the African Development Bank and the Common Fund for Commodities have the pleasure to announce the launching of the Agroforestry Technical Assistance Facility (ATAF) of the Moringa Fund at World Forestry Congress in Durban on the 9th of September, from 12:45 to 14:15 in the Hall 2FH.
ATAF aims to promote the development of commercially viable smallholder agroforestry systems alongside agro-industrial companies supported by the Moringa fund. Through a landscape approach, ATAF initiates capacity building, dissemination of practices and research & development programmes for local (and often vulnerable) communities in proximity to the companies supported by Moringa.
The Moringa Fund is a €85M triple bottom line impact fund backed by Development Finance Institutions and private investors, focusing on agroforestry investments in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.
The event will discuss this new way of enhancing agroforestry as a land use practice and discuss the main objectives and projects of ATAF. (Detailed agenda of the event)
