Food security researchers are getting very good at predicting outcomes, evaluating impacts, and making recommendations related to virtually every aspect of food system transformation, including access to finance and the role of financial services. This could be strengthened through more exposure to and collaboration with the fintech space, where technologies and business models are rapidly evolving. Conversely, the kinds of analysis conducted by CGIAR and partners into responsible sourcing, sustainable farming, climatic risk and adaptation have tremendous potential value that is underutilized in furthering access to finance. How can we bring these two broad domains together? What are the analytics and business models that can drive food system transformation through such digital cross-pollination?
