Climate change is altering temperatures and rainfall patterns around the globe, putting stress on agricultural production systems. Smallholder farmers in developing countries are particularly vulnerable to climatic changes, as they have limited resources to cope with shocks and stresses.

In order to respond to the challenge of climate change and to achieve food security and poverty alleviation, agriculture must undergo a transformation. SNV’s Climate Smart Agriculture programme is part of this effort. It aims to sustainably increase agricultural productivity and smallholder incomes, build resilience to climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by offering three different solutions: climate smart landscapes, deforestation-free supply chains and future farms. We work at the local producer level, the company supply chain level and across the wider landscape to deliver livelihood benefits for the poor and sustainable development at scale.
