FAO Umbrella Programme on Responsible Agricultural Investments (RAI)

To feed a growing world population, not only more, but better investments in agriculture are needed. Switzerland contributed to the creation of the Principles of Responsible Agricultural Investments of the Committee on World Food Security. The FAO-Umbrella Programme aims to apply these principles and increase sustainable investment by strengthening legal frameworks, enhancing investments incentives, and strengthening the capacities of smallholders in contract negotiations.
