Investment in agriculture is needed to feed a growing global population. These investments need to respect the situation of the local population and the environment. Switzerland chaired the drafting process of the Principles on Responsible Agricultural Investments that have been adopted by the Committee on World Food Security. Consequently Switzerland supports the application of the Principles by training development country stakeholders in the negotiation and application of sustainable investment frameworks to increase food security for the poorest populations.

As worldwide demand for food increases, countries need to attract ever greater amounts of investment into agriculture and food systems. When done right, increased investment can strengthen food security, create employment, increase incomes and promote economic development. But when done badly, it can exacerbate existing inequalities, undermine livelihoods, deplete natural resources, and worsen gender inequities.
With the Principles of Responsible Investments in Agriculture and Food Systems (RAI) by the Committee on World Food Security (CFS), the international community has an agreement at hand that can be implemented by all stakeholders.
|Obiettivi||Strengthening of legal and policy frameworks, evidence, and consensus, to help ensure sustainable and responsible investment that positively contributes to agriculture and food systems and increases the food security of the poorest populations. Special attention is paid to gender sensitive investments.|

The activities of this project are fully taken into account in the design of other interventions in the cluster Responsible Agricultural Investments. Currently in the project “ASEAN Guidelines to promote responsible agricultural investments”, and in discussions with FAO on a GPFS participation in the FAO RAI-Umbrella Programme.
Since land is a major focus area of IISD, the synergy with GPFS’ Focus area 2.2 on land tenure is also assured.
