Agriculture


SNV Agriculture reduces poverty and improves livelihoods through innovative solutions that address food & nutrition security, sustainable markets, climate smart agriculture, and equality of opportunity for women and youth in employment and business.

Agriculture addresses a basic need: Food and nutrition security for a population expected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050. It offers essential commodities, employment, and environmental services that facilitate economic and social development. Yet agriculture also accounts for 70% of water use and over 30% of greenhouse gas emissions. It contributes to and is threatened by climate change, which disproportionately affects the 500 million smallholder farmers who produce 80% of the food consumed in developing countries. SNV has developed food, income and climate solutions that maximise the benefits while minimising the negative impacts of agriculture. Our goal is to reduce poverty, increase sustainable agriculture and create opportunities for millions of women and men in developing countries.
