USAID Green Invest Asia
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.
