Farmers in developing countries face multiple and complex challenges: climate change, environmental degradation, economic upheaval, water scarcity, increased pollution and dietary health concerns, and rapid population growth. Indeed, agriculture has a huge environmental footprint as it generates almost a quarter of greenhouse gases as well as being impacted by climate changes.

By 2050, the world will need to feed 10 billion humans, but to do so, agriculture must become sustainable and resilient. Agriculture value chains must deliver more and better food at affordable prices while protecting the environment, improving human health, and fighting resource loss. They also need to bring bigger returns to create opportunities for growth and poverty reduction in our partner countries.

How can we promote agricultural practices and technologies that raise rural income? How can developing farmers harvest viable products while being sustainable in terms of climate, ecosystems and other natural resource use?
