Main goals

Nitidæ has experience with investment funds, Development Finance Institutions (DFI), private investors in the agricultural, agri-food and forestry sectors in the context of feasibility studies, Due Diligence and also coaching invested companies. This experience makes it possible to couple here the identification of the environmental and social risks associated with investments, with the expectations of investors according to their profile vis-à-vis of "Environmental, Social and Governance" risks (ESG), but also the potential impacts of the projects.

It will thus be a question of studying solutions adapted to the agricultural sector to help SIDI to invest in actions in favor of the climate, in particular in the sectors: energy, agroecology and forestry

Specific objectives

SO1. Realization of an economic models/economic activities mapping of currently financed by SIDI in order to select the most relevant to meet the objectives of mitigation and adaptation
SO2. Development of summary sheets for each of the sub-sectors studied (electricity production from biomass, clean cooking, Payments for Environmental Services, carbon, agroecological transition and inputs, Agritech, forestry, etc.)
SO3. Formulation of recommendations on the sub-sectors to be prioritized and on the additional sub-sectors for which SIDI's action could be relevant
