Designing a funding architecture that strategically coordinates capital for transitioning the Midwest’s conventional food system to regenerative.

Ivana Gazibara TransCap Initiative

The unsustainability of our global agriculture system is the quintessential systemic challenge. The food, agriculture, and land use sector contributes ~24% of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Climate change will also reduce staple crop yields and nutritional content over time, impacting our ability to sustainably feed a growing global population.

In our Meet-up, we will delve into the transformative potential of transitioning the Midwest’s conventional food system to one rooted in regenerative agriculture practices. Drawing insights from the Regenerative Food & Agriculture Prototype developed by Meridian Institute and TransCap Initiative (TCI), with the support of the New Capitalism Project Lab (NCP), participants will engage in a facilitated discussion to understand the systemic challenges and opportunities in this transition.

Through a mix of presentation and collaborative exercises, participants will explore the systems diagnosis and transition map, dissect key leverage points, and discuss how to align capital with the shared vision for regenerative agriculture. By the end of the session, we hope participants will have gained practical insights on how to orchestrate capital to support regenerative agriculture initiatives and be equipped with actionable steps to drive systemic transformation in the Midwest’s food system
