change and sustainable production in arable farming. The programme will work
with and through the private sector and supports public sector partners in
creating an institutional environment for wide-scale adoption of CSA-practices.
It is driven by 3 pillars: i) adoption of CSA practices & technologies in
arable crop production farming systems; ii) acceleration of investments and
business growth in selected value chains; iii) improved enabling environment
for scaling out of CSA. Interventions are centered on business cases which are
derived from a thorough climate risk assessment and financial analysis of value
chains in pulses, oilseeds, potatoes and grains. A climate smart business case
matching grant facility aims to further improve access to finance and
facilitate scaling. The programme is implemented by a consortium consisting of
SNV, Wageningen University & Research (WUR), the CGIAR research programme
on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), Agriterra and
Rabobank, and is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS).
