Inari is a network-based system designed to finance sustainable land use at a global scale. If developed and implemented properly, Inari would be truly groundbreaking, attracting large investments of private capital into land management while maintaining quality standards for sustainability and governance.
The study team has designed Inari to support diverse land use practices. In particular, they have focused on investment in sustainable production activities in agriculture and forestry, as well as the infrastructure that transforms the outputs of those activities into market-ready products.
This means that Inari’s investment activities will have much greater breadth than usual. Inari might invest in a system of rice intensification in Maliv, a combined heat and power community sawmill in Mexico, a maize/fruit agroforestry operation in Zambia or rehabilitating mangrove forests to support sustainable livelihoods through beekeeping and fisheries in Vietnam.
