Tackling agricultural productivity also helps mitigate climate change threats

Many solutions to improve agricultural productivity and farmer livelihoods also have positive impacts on climate change adaptation, and they often aren’t cash intensive. If local institutions and individuals receive more technical assistance, some additional financial resources and critical support in disseminating and sharing knowledge, it could make a tremendous impact, says Sara Scherr, president and CEO of EcoAgriculture Partners.

Planet Worth is an online conversation exploring leading solutions in the fight against climate change. Hosted by Devex and our partners, the campaign examines how the impact of climate change on livelihoods and ecosystems is felt across all sectors and is linked to key issues like migration, water access and food security.
