Background of the ProjectSNV is managing the Climate Smart Agriculture for Tomorrow (CRAFT) project.

The interventions are centred on business cases which are derived from a thorough climate risk assessment and financial analysis of value chains in pulses, potatoes, oil seeds and grains.
Working with and through the private sector, CRAFT uses a facilitative approach to implement solutions that integrate improvements in food security with climate adaptation and mitigation of food crop production and supply systems. This, together with leveraged investment in interventions that promote market-driven adoption and scaling of inclusive climate-smart business developments enhances climate resilience along the selected agricultural value chain to increase productive capacity and incomes of Agribusinesses and smallholder farmers.
