Terra Bella Fund SICAV-SIF S.A. (Farmers for Forests)
Last updated 12 May 2020, by Impactyield.
The Terra Bella Fund is a frontier private equity fund that invests in small holder agriculture linked to reducing deforestation in developing countries.
Fund investments produce environmentally, socially and economically sustainable landscapes, building significant sources of income for communities from production of non-timber forest products and high-value sustainably produced agricultural commodities linked to forest conservation.
Combining climate change mitigation and the production of sustainable local and forest-linked agricultural crops is at the core of investment strategy to generate sustainable long-term returns to Terra Bella investors.
Returns are generated from agricultural, non-timber forest products, sustainable timber as well as through sale of emission reductions to emerging markets and results based programs.
