    This publication was written by the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) as part of the project “AgrInvest-Food Systems: Enabling inclusive and efficient private sector investment in agrifood systems”, implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in partnership with the ECDPM. The paper presents the methodology, and related lessons, that emerged from the AgrInvest-FS project to promote private investment into food systems aligned with the SDGs, by applying a fully-fledged food systems approach to value chain investment processes and by leveraging public funds and blended finance. In five stages, the use of this Methodology can lead to the launch of policy packages, inclusive multi-actor platforms, and funding opportunities, for effectively scaling up the quantity and quality of finance for sustainable food systems, with a focus on access to finance for local food system actors (SMEs, smallholder farmers, women) and local financial intermediaries.
