The September edition of the F@rmletter features opens with an article – defining and advancing Responsible Agricultural Investments – by Kaitlin Y. Cordes head of works in investments in land and agriculture, human rights and international investments; Columbia Center on Sustainable Investments; New York, USA. She emphasized that Farmers have a critical role to play in promoting responsible agricultural investments (RAI). Indeed, as the backbone of our agricultural systems and as one of the main sources of investment in agriculture, farmers are and should be at the vanguard of these efforts. At the same time, farmers—particularly small-scale producers and smallholders—also stand to benefit from more responsible investments.
