Climate change already affects agricultural productivity – especially of poor smallholder farmers. By 2030, 90% of the world’s major crops, including maize, rice and wheat, will experience reduced or stagnant growth rates as a result of climate change. It is therefore essential that farmers are supported to adopt climate-smart agriculture to sustain their livelihoods.

Our approach

The promise of climate smart agriculture will only be realised with innovative market-led delivery mechanisms. Support for innovations such as the use of stress-tolerant seeds, weather insurance and new climate finance models capitalises on existing market mechanisms and new ICT solutions. In parallel CTA continues to build an evidence base showing the benefits of adopting CSA at the farm level in ACP countries.

Critical to success will be our continued partnerships on the ground, or with intermediaries (agribusinesses, insurers and weather services), knowledge generators and policy makers.
