Catalyzing Conversation and Action for Investment in Regenerative Agriculture and Food in Australia and the Oceania Region.
May 26-27 9:00 am-1:00 pm AEST (Australia)
May 25-26 7:00-11:00 pm EDT (U.S.)
Regenerative Food Systems Investment (RFSI) was created to connect investors to strategies and opportunities to diversify risk, improve returns and increase impact through the deployment of capital to regenerative agriculture and food systems.
The aim of RFSI Australia is to bring a diverse investor community together to catalyze a long-term conversation around investment in regenerative agriculture and food systems in Australia and beyond, as well as to dig into the how of creating and executing finance and investment solutions that help further expansion of these systems and their positive impacts.
Why investment in regenerative agriculture and food?
Investments in regenerative agriculture not only support carbon sequestration to combat climate change but also offer numerous other ecological, social, and financial benefits. To name a few:
Ecological: increased soil life, nutrient density, water retention, biodiversity, and whole-system resilience.
Economic: improved margins as operators can cut costly inputs while maintaining yields, improving land value, and potentially garnering premiums for their products.
Social: by eliminating addiction to costly chemical inputs, focusing on regional food supply chains and supporting healthy farms that can continue to thrive generation after generation – regenerative agriculture fosters community resilience.
The opportunity is strong but not widely understood and barriers to expansion and investment do exist. This two-day event will facilitate increased understanding of the opportunity in regenerative agriculture investment and how it can be successfully executed, as well as create a multi-directional conversation to better match capital with the desired outcomes of all involved.
- Connect investors and funders from across the region (and the world) to the opportunities in regenerative agriculture
- Outline the opportunities for investment and capital needed to move these systems forward
- Address the barriers for further adoption of and investment in of this type of system
- Examine and learn from success stories and case studies
- Facilitate a dialogue between the many diverse actors in the regenerative agriculture, food, finance and investment ecosystem
