This project focuses on diversifying smallholder farming systems by scaling up the production and marketing of high-value food trees (improved fruits and macadamias) to address structural conditions and inequalities in rural Malawi.
African food systems face growing threats associated with the degradation of natural resources, increasing inequalities, and rising levels of food insecurity and malnutrition, all of which have been worsened during the past two years as result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This project aims to strength individual and institutional capacities in selected African countries to analyze and transform food systems to deliver food security, nutrition, food safety, and human and environmental health in a gender-equitable manner.
This project takes a private-sector-led approach to addressing the dual challenge of making food security climate-smart and mainstreaming gender considerations while transitioning to a low-carbon economy at scale.
This project will contribute to the large-scale adoption of improved cookstoves that will reduce the domestic burden of unpaid work for women and the carbon footprint of households while creating economic opportunities for women in rural areas.
This operational project will support the implementation of the Knowledge Accelerator for Climate Compatible Development project (#108754) by covering the operational costs including salaries and benefits, travel, and office costs.
