Extreme weather is causing significant problems for smallholder farmers and others who depend on agricultural value chains in developing countries. Although value-chain analysis can help untangle the complex relationships within agricultural systems, it often has failed to take into account the effects of climate change. Warming temperatures, increasing droughts and unseasonal rains have rendered farmers helpless. Food security poses a growing challenge for much of the continent. Through Climate Smart Agriculture, these obstacles can be surpassed to give way for a fairer, more sustainable model of agriculture.
This program aims to harness the organic and natural nature of agriculture practised in the selected regions and support the communities in developing a structured value chain and in accessing the right markets to get them fair prices.
