Private Sector for Food Security Initiative
Annual Report 2015
The publication stems off of EBRD's Private Sector for Food Initiative, which combines the Bank's own investments with technical assistance and support for reforms to help enhance food security across the countries where EBRD invests and to improve food quality standards and animal welfare practices.
Together with FAO, the Bank is working to support the development of agricultural cooperatives in the southern and eastern Mediterranean region to maximise their impact on rural employment and the participation of young people and women in the economy.
The 2015 Report stresses that finance alone is not always enough to achieve private sector development in markets across the EBRD region.
