Farming and Climate
Farmers who rely on rainfall are on the front lines of climate change. They must adapt to the changing weather now, and keep their land sustainable for generations to come. One Acre Fund farmers have planted 100 million trees to date, and we aim to see 1 billion trees planted by 2030.
We’re launching a 10-year climate strategy committed to building the resilience of smallholder farmers in the face of a changing climate.
Only by equipping smallholder farmers with the tools they need to withstand the impacts of climate change can we achieve sustainable and equitable food systems.
Farming insurance is an emerging tool in climate risk management that can help ensure smallholders are able to plant again the following season even if crops fail in the current one, and encourage them to take risks to invest more in their farms even when the climate is so unpredictable.
Food is the most basic of human needs. It is essential not just for the health of individuals but also that of communities, which, in turn, affects the health of national economies.
With a simple feature phone, Rwanda's smallholder farmers have access to the quality farming inputs and training they need to grow more food and earn more money.
Women farmers tend to invest more in their homes and families, thereby fuelling the prosperity of their communities.
Our countries and global departments share how we’re innovating to multiply farmer impact by 2024 and deliver $1 billion in impact in terms of food and income by 2030.
