INMED welcomes Allen Pattillo to our INMED Caribbean team. Allen will serve as the Aquaponics Technical Director for our Increasing Access to Climate-smart Agriculture program in Jamaica. The 4-year initiative will provide access to financing and markets, training and technical assistance to help small-scale farmers, women and youth start aquaponics enterprises. INMED is working with the Development Bank of Jamaica and local financial institutions to provide smallholder producers access to affordable financing to start aquaponics enterprises and facilitate loan repayment. Program partners include the Caribbean Development Bank, Inter-American Development Bank/Multilateral Investment Fund, United Nations Environment Programme-Danish Technical University Partnership and Jamaica’s Rural Agriculture Development Authority.
