We will not share Monsato’s risk. Potential cooperation between the EBRD and Monsanto fails.

The plans centered around a  USD 40 million ‘risk-sharing facility’ so that medium-large and distributors in , , , Hungary, and Turkey could buy ’s and agro-chemicals in , without losing money if they got into debt.

Those plans have now been dropped due in part to a protest letter signed by 158 organizations which was delivered to EBRD. The letter titled “We will not share ’s risk”  can be accessed on ’s website. http://bankwatch.org/publications/we-will-not-share-monsantos-risk-open-letter-ebrd
