Funding regenerative agriculture
How do we fund regenerative agriculture?
One of the challenges of regenerative agriculture is funding it. In a ‘cheap food’ system many of the costs are externalised onto the environment or people without privilege and power. Regenerative agriculture instead must find ways to internalise or cross-subsidise those costs.
Here are some great examples from around the world of how people are funding new regenerative agriculture initiatives and transitions, and are thinking about the different funding levers available.
