Colliding Crises, Converging Solutions: How Public-Private Partnerships Can Build Resilient Rural Communities | Root Capital

10/20/2021 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM
Virtual -

Farming families across the globe face increasingly urgent threats to their livelihoods, from volatile crop prices to the climate crisis. Without sustained collective action, the ripple effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will compound these systemic challenges for decades to come. Join us October 20 to learn how collaboration across sectors can be used to tackle these existential threats and reimagine rural resilience. Speakers from Root Capital and its partner organizations will discuss lessons from the Partnership for Sustainable Supply Chains, an innovative pandemic response centered on small and growing coffee agricultural enterprises. The conversation will also examine how multi-sector collaboration can build the resilience of rural communities now and in the future.
