How climate finance can benefit smallholders

Climate finance can be used as an instrument to help smallholders overcome some of the numerous barriers to investments in sustainable agricultural practices. It can catalyze the transition to a more resilient agricultural sector that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and increases carbon sequestration while fostering food security and promoting the local economic development. Two new reports from the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security look at the incentives, and carbon finance instruments that could support changes in smallholding practises for mitigation, adaptation and food security. The reports were produced in collaboration with the Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programme of the FAO.
