Climate Smart Agriculture East Africa (CSA-EA) Project

Offered by SNV

The overall goal of the project is to increase the availability of accessible climate smart food for the growing population in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The emphasis of the project implementation will be adopting climate smart practices and technologies among smallholder farmers and agro-enterprises, increasing investments and business growth in climate smart value chains, and creating the enabling environment necessary to ensure the large-scale rollout of market-driven climate smart solutions for the agriculture sector. The project aims to transform, reorient and climate-proof agricultural systems and businesses to the new realities of climate change in a select number of value chains.

Specific project objectives:
Adoption of climate smart practices and technologies among 300,000 farmers
Development of inclusive business cases for 50 agri-business SMEs and 30 cooperatives
Climate resilient sustainable food production on 600,000 hectares

The project is hinged on three key pillars of climate smart agriculture:
Productivity: sustainably increase agricultural productivity and incomes
Adaptation: reduce the exposure of farmers and agri-businesses to short-term risks while strengthening their resilience by building their capacity to adapt and prosper in the face of climatic shocks
Mitigation: reduce greenhouse gases emissions, increase water and energy efficiencies
