To support implementation of the Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems (CFS RAI), CCSI has developed resources for governments and other stakeholders in partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO).
This work includes an online course on creating an enabling environment for responsible investment in agriculture and food systems. The course is freely available, accessible online and available for download. Part I highlights the features and key players of an enabling environment that promotes responsible investment in agriculture and food security. Part II addresses multi-stakeholder engagement in the design of legal and institutional frameworks that govern investment.
CCSI has also developed a Guide on Incentives for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems. The Guide aims to provide policymakers with guidance on how investment incentives can be used to enhance responsible investment in agriculture and food systems--including by noting when incentives should not be used. It offers practical guidance on how to design, implement, monitor, and evaluate investment incentives that are aligned with the CFS RAI principles.
