USAID Green Invest Asia

August 22, 2019

Commercial agriculture is responsible for 40 percent of Asia's deforestation. From 1990 to 2016, agricultural greenhouse gas emissions rose 37 percent in Southeast Asia; that's more than twice the global average increase. To scale sustainable land use, USAID Green Invest Asia, led by Pact, is pursuing climate-smart business solutions with agriculture and forestry companies in Southeast Asia with a demonstrated commitment to environmental and social stewardship. Qualified companies and financiers receive a mix of capital matchmaking, technical and business advisory, and/or transaction support. Learn in this video how we are partnering, co-investing and transforming land use in Southeast Asia.
