Drive to encourage investment in Nepal’s agri-food sector

Business journalist Shivanee Thapa will moderate CASA’s Nepal Agriculture Investment Meeting in Kathmandu on the 8th December 2022.  This one-day action-orientated meeting, will work with delegates to suggested enhancements to the enabling agriculture investment environment in Nepal.

The goal is to facilitate discussions between investors, investment stakeholders, intermediaries and policymakers around the key challenges and bottlenecks faced for investing in climate positive agriculture in Nepal. These discussions should lead to a call for action to address some of the underlying issues.

The meeting will happen prior to a series of investor tourism events, which seek to directly broker investment into businesses that have been capacity built by CASA Nepal.

The meeting will lead to tangible action points for each stakeholder involved, and will comprise of facilitated conversations, panel discussion and breakout sessions involving policymakers, and investors and donors able to invest in agriculture in Nepal. We are confident that these breakout sessions will develop an action plan addressing the underlying issues limiting agriculture investment in the country.

Alvaro Valverde, Engagement, Learning and Communication Lead for CASA, said: ‘we expect this event will lead to Nepal to be promoted as a global destination for agriculture investments, and further develop synergies across the agriculture investment community in Nepal.

Going forward, we hope that this format can be a model for conducting annual agri-investment meetings in Nepal.’

CASA’s national agriculture investment meetings are core to the programme’s stakeholder engagement strategy. They offer an opportunity to deep dive into specific investment constraints and opportunities in a particular country. They also promote additionality between investors and other in-country stakeholders.

This meeting is the culmination of over two years work in Nepal to facilitate investment and efficiency gains in vegetable and dairy value chains.
