Master Class Grid

The Boulder RAFP features a dynamic roundtable and interactive seminar each morning led by Massimo Pera and A’kos Szebeni from FAO and Panayotis Varangis from the World Bank Group. Throughout the RAFP Master Class, our guest speakers accompanied by leading experts in rural and agricultural finance, present a holistic overview of a financial ecosystem that works for the rural households. Master Class guests discuss and debate several principal themes such as: What are the trends in Agricultural Financing? What is the role of Agricultural Finance in the Financial Inclusion Agenda? What are the challenges that lie ahead? The RAFP Master Class is a mandatory activity for all RAFP participants, and is held each morning of the 2-week training program.

The 2019 Master Class grid will be published at a later date.  As reference, please see the 2018 Boulder Master Class grid (below):
