FFCC hosts a discussion at the Real Oxford Farming Conference on innovative financial solutions for fair and sustainable farming
Real Oxford Farming Conference: Cheng Yu Tung Building, Jesus College, OX1 3DW
11:00am 5th January 2023
Aligning investment and finance decisions is critical to kickstart a transition to agroecology.
Farmers can be a force for change, but what are investors looking for and how can policy and market frameworks support bold moves? What does supportive finance look like for farmers trying to access new investment or new environmental services markets as part of viable farm businesses? And what role can the UK’s financial institutions play in this?
We are hosting an in-person discussion and Q&A at the Oxford Read Farming Conference.
