Call for Proposals: Innovative ideas in the field of agriculture technology and sustainable production
The Common Fund for Commodities is inviting applications for support of commodity development activities in its member countries.
Through a range of financial instruments, the CFC seeks to support business activities in the field of commodity development, including agriculture, minerals and metals in Developing Countries. The intervention should, besides giving a sound financial return, also provide for a measurable social and environmental return.
Project proposals that incorporate innovative ideas in the field of agriculture technology and include more sustainable ways of production are especially expected to be submitted.
All interested parties are kindly invited to submit qualifying proposals no later than 15 APRIL 2019.

Catholic Relief Services with its program Cosecha Azul and ASA work with small farmers to promote good agricultural practices that help conserve the soil and the productive water in them to achieve higher yields and protect the environment. It also seeks to connect these producers with conscientious markets that seek to support this type of initiatives by paying better prices.
