Harvard Kennedy School report on multi stakeholder initiatives

A new report titled “The role of Multi-stakeholder Initiatives in promoting the resilience of smallholder agriculture to climate change in Africa,” explores specifically how leading organizations are using multi-stakeholder solutions to tackle complex, system-wide development problems at the intersection of climate change and smallholder finance.

The report – published by a group including representatives from the Harvard Kennedy School Corporate Sustainability Initiative, Dalberg Research, The Mastercard Foundation, and TechnoServe – draws on insights from the landmark report of the GDI "More than the Sum of its Parts", as well as advisory support from GDI’s Executive Director Andrew Stern. It features several leading organizations to show what agricultural finance-oriented multi-stakeholder initiatives look like in practice, including two GDI-incubated initiatives: the Mastercard Foundation RAF Learning Lab (the Lab) and Initiative for Smallholder Finance (ISF).
