The IAWG contributes to enhancing responsible agricultural investment at global, regional and national levels by:
  • generating knowledge on the trends, impacts and determinants of larger-scale agricultural investment through innovative research;
  • providing evidence-based guidance through support to the development and field research on the application of international instruments, including the CFS Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems;
  • promoting awareness and multi-stakeholder dialogue through workshops and seminars.

Pilot use of principles guiding new investments in agriculture.

Initiated in January 2015, the programme pilot tests the utilization of, and raises awareness on international guidance instruments for responsible investment in agriculture in six African countries.
