The main areas of intervention are financing non-reimbursable operations (Technical Cooperation and Investment Grants) for:

  • project design and studies;
  • formulation / review of national strategies and policies;
  • training and other knowledge events, and

Demonstration and pilot projects take place within the following three pillars:

  • agricultural/environmental management; 
  • increased productivity through sustainable intensification;
  • trade and access to markets.

Specifically, this platform aims to promote projects related to food and crops of value-added commodities, livestock, fisheries, agroforestry and related to institutional capacity and governance.

The fund is part of IDB's NDC Invest Platform, a one-stop shop of the IDB Group to help countries access resources needed to translate national climate commitments into investment plans and bankable projects. NDC Invest is a platform that includes the entire universe of financial and non-financial instruments of the IDB Group, and it is comprised of four elements: NDC Programmer, NDC Pipeline Accelerator, NDC Market Booster and NDC Finance Mobilizer. Together, the components aim to enable progress toward both the NDC and IDB lending objectives, as well as toward achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
