A COP First: The Food Systems Pavilion Keeps Agriculture High on This Year’s Agenda

Egypt’s COP27 Food and Agriculture for Sustainable Transformation (FAST) initiative was launched last week. For the first time, COP set up an official Food and Agriculture Pavilion where local and global actors including farmers and youth could share experiences and solutions to address the transformation of agri-food systems. Food security is core to our investment strategy and an important part of our impact journey. We strive to contribute to the growth of sustainable agricultural value chains and help rural populations build their resilience and adapt to climate change.

A life-changing medical centre opens in Voloshinka, Kazakhstan

People living in Voloshinka, Kazakhstan, had to travel over 160 kilometres to receive medical care or reach the closest pharmacy. That has finally changed as a small medical centre opened its doors this year, where a nurse as well as a dentist assist patients coming in from neighbouring villages. We are glad we were able to contribute to this small, yet significant step towards facilitating locals’ access to basic healthcare by financing the centre’s equipment and drugs while Kazakh authorities cover human resources’ costs.

Farmer Impact Grant and Technical Training for Women Rice Farmers

Women rice farmers in Côte d'Ivoire struggle to access mechanisation for agricultural production. Often left with the least fertile soils and the most difficult land to cultivate, women would highly benefit from farm machinery. It would protect the paddy from rainfalls, reduce losses and allow for faster harvesting times, thus improving women rice farmers’ income and livelihoods. INOKS Capital contributes to reducing the barrier to mechanisation by supporting Socomci, an Ivorian company active in rice processing and packaging.

Supporting access to education in Ladakh Region (Northern India)

In September 2022, INOKS Capital provided a 15’000$ grant to fund scholarships of 25 school children in the Ladakh region (Northern India) for youth from marginalised ethnic groups, in particular young girls, who noticeably struggle with access to basic education. The grant will cover total yearly school costs (tuition fees, transport, accommodation & food, technology, laboratory, and co-curricular activities) noting that these educational expenses represent a very high financial burden for the families whose average household income stands below 700$ per year. The children will attend the Druk Padma Karpo School, a school spearheading sustainable design in the region.

INOKS’ contribution to the IISD’s latest review on Standards and Investments in Sustainable Agriculture

INOKS Capital S.A. is proud to have participated to the International Institute for Sustainable Development's (IISD) new research on Standards and Investments in Sustainable Agriculture. At a time when sustainable investments are increasingly sought, this new research shows that farmers adopting voluntary sustainability standards can lower financial risks and potentially catalyze investment in sustainable agriculture. On page 38, INOKS shares a case study on one of its counterparties active in seed cotton and cotton lint. This Ghanaian company's success has been supported by the adoption of the 'Cotton made in Africa' (CimA) standards.
